Detention Deputy First Class Ed Hill Retires After 30 Years of Service

Earlier this week, we celebrated Detention Deputy First Class Edward Hill for 30 years of continuous service with the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office and honored his time upon his retirement. 

CDFC Hill began his career many years ago, on October 1, 1993, as a recruit in the academy. When Ed completed the academy, he was assigned to the “Old Jail”, which was then located on Airport Rd. where the current Training Center is now. He gained the rank of Deputy First Class on October 1, 1995, where he has remained his entire career.

CDFC Hill served his country from 1984 to 1992 in the US Navy stationed in Sicily and then on to Key West for his second tour of duty.  We thank him for this military service in addition to his service to Charlotte County.

In 2008, Ed was severely attacked by an inmate with mental health issues while working his shift at the Jail. CDFC Hill sustained injuries in that attack that kept him out of work for approximately six months. Despite this, Ed’s spirit remained strong and he returned to work with his same positive attitude and strong work ethic, earning him the honor of Detention Deputy of the Year.

Ed plans to enjoy his retirement by moving to Montana with his wife in approximately 5 years.

CDFC Hill, we thank you for your loyalty and dedication to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office and your 30 years of service to the community. Your service to the Agency, the Detention Bureau, and Charlotte County is greatly appreciated.

Please join us in congratulating CDFC Hill on his 30 years of loyal service to the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office. Congratulations on your retirement!

“It’s always bittersweet to say goodbye to someone who is retiring, and even more so when that individual has been here as long as I have. CDFC Hill is the embodiment of what a detention deputy should be; he is kind, understanding, compassionate, and committed to the custody, care, and control of the incarcerated. Ed, I wish all the best as you move on to your next chapter, and I hope that you never forget that you are family to us here at CCSO.”

Sheriff Bill Prummell
