Hill was one of five recipients who received the Caught in the Act Award in 2020. Caught in the Act is a recognition program for Union County employees. This program encourages employees to recognize and thank employees for going above and beyond expected roles within their job description with a nomination for Caught in the Act.

In June, Hill overheard a dispatch call to check on a child threatening self-harm. Hill, who is a school resource officer at Fairview Elementary School and Porter Ridge Elementary School, recognized the child's name from previously helping the child. She went out of her way to respond to the child's home believing she could help because of their previously established relationship. She also reached out to the school counselor and Behavioral Health Collaborative to ensure the child received appropriate services. Hill's empathy, responsiveness and trustworthiness significantly helped a difficult situation.

"We encourage our employees to strive to exceed expectations and Tiffany Hill does that regularly," said County Manager Mark Watson. "Her efforts to help a child in need show how much she truly cares about this community. It's important to me and to the Management Team that we recognize efforts like that and reward our employees through the Caught in the Act program."
