Durham County Sheriff Worth L. Hill and Chief of Police Jose L. Lopez
Worth Hill, a former police officer and county sheriff from 1994 to 2011, and Jose Lopez, chief of police beginning in 2007, are shown here together at a Durham Christmas parade. The sheriff’s office and the police department have a significant history of collaboration. Recent examples of joint efforts include crime analysis and the Violence Incident Response Unit. National Night Out, a crime and drug prevention event that promotes community partnerships with the law enforcement, is also an initiative of both agencies.
