Description

We are delighted to bring this Nationally Accredited Graduate Level Command and Leadership Program to the Horry County Police Department, Myrtle Beach, SC.

The Command & Staff Program will prepare you as part of the vanguard of today’s professional policing leaders. You will learn practical skills and tools to succeed in an ever-changing dynamic environment.

The class focuses on effectively resolving the challenges of an accomplished career. This session of your professional development is a blended learning experience of on-line and classroom instruction complemented to enhance your learning.

Graduates of the program will leave with new colleagues, a diverse array of faculty from which the student can continue to consult, and ways to act ahead of change to create an optimistic future for law enforcement and the communities they serve.

The long-term goal of the program is to add to the leadership skill sets of each participant; it is also to contribute to the body of knowledge of law enforcement through the completion of significant foresight-based research.

  • Leadership principles required to inspire and influence the future direction of the agency.
  • Strategies and tactics to identify emerging issues and provide a proactive response to deliver results with confidence.
  • Advanced hand-on tools, skills and knowledge necessary to anticipate and prepare for the future success.
  • Fundamental and necessary working methods and benefits of sharing information.
  • Use of teams and stakeholders in problem solving for better outcomes.

The core focus on the topic* selected for capstone will be one that can be approached in one of two ways:

  • The student can select a significant issue affecting law enforcement and their communities today which are having a significant impact, and for which there are no easy answers. These issues are commonly referred to as “wicked problems” and can range from something affecting one’s own agency, the state or region of that agency, or the larger profession. The focus of the research would then be to clearly define not only the symptoms and problems associated with the issue, but its underlying causes. Using that data, foresight tools and concepts will be used to identify emerging issues (technologies, social movements, political action, etc.) that may affect that issue.
  • The second approach would be to identify a significant emerging issue of relevance to the future of law enforcement. The scope of the research can be how an issue might affect a function in policing, an agency size or type, or a specific issue the agency will encounter as a result of the emerging issue’s impact. This research would start from the “outside-in” and scan the horizon for what may be next, rather than focusing on what is already here, and then devising strategies to mitigate adverse outcomes
  • The students in programs with capstone will select a topic for research and then learn the tools and concepts they will use to complete the Futures Portfolio.

The course graduates will receive a National Command & Staff College diploma and a MAGNUS CENTURION Neck or Chest Green color Ribbon Medallion.

With this, the graduates become a member of the MAGNUS CENTURION Network for enhanced networking and future re-training and development.

Chief Joseph “Joe” R. Hill

Chief Hill was appointed Chief of Police for Horry County Police Department on Sept. 23, 2016.

A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, he entered the Washington, DC Metropolitan Reserve Police Academy in June 1984 while also on active duty in the U.S. Navy working for Naval Intelligence as a Cryptologic Technician. He later joined the Fairfax County Police Department in October 1988. After 28 years with the department, Chief Hill officially retired from Fairfax County in 2016 to lead the Horry County Police Department.

Throughout his law enforcement career, Chief Hill was exposed to multiple levels of leadership, to include serving within the following units and bureaus:

  • First Line Supervisor
  • Volunteer and Auxiliary Unit Coordinator
  • Police Liaison Commander
  • Assistant Director of Fairfax County’s 911 Center
  • Precinct Commander for the Mount Vernon and West Springfield communities in Fairfax County, Virginia
  • Director of the Fairfax County Criminal Justice Academy
  • Major of the Administrative Services Bureau

Chief Hill is a dedicated student of ethical leadership training and education for professionals in the field of law enforcement, and he mentors senior members of police agencies worldwide through as a counter-terrorism instructor with the U.S. State Department’s Anti-Terror Assistance Program (ATA). Chief Hill has taught police and military commanders abroad and traveled over 13 countries to conduct counter-terror operations and ethical leadership training.

Among other awards and accomplishments, Chief Hill graduated with honors from the University of Richmond, receiving his undergraduate degree in HR and leadership and Honor Graduate of the Graduate program at the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). He is also a graduate of the prestigious FBI National Academy, session 256.

Professional networking and community engagement is key for Chief Hill. He is a member of the National Association of Black Law Enforcement Executives, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and the South Carolina Chiefs Association, as well as a board member of the Boys and Girls Club of the Grand Strand.

Since becoming Chief of Police for HCPD, Chief Hill’s focus has been reducing violent crime associated with gang and drug violence.  Recent strides in lowering violent crime are a direct result of his collaboration with federal partners in directing targeted resources to identify repeat offenders and remove them from the Horry County community through regional partnerships and the federal process.
