Hi, I'm Glen Hill


Glen Hill was born in New Bern, NC.  After graduating from high school, he joined the U.S. Army.  His last tour of duty was Vint Hill Farms Station on the western border of Prince William County, where he served in the U.S. Army Security Agency.  He received an Honorable Discharge from the U.S. Army in June 1969.  Following his discharge, he became the first African-American to join the Manassas Police Department.  While serving there, he continued his education in Criminal Justice at Northern Virginia Community College.  In 1993, he was named Superintendent of the Prince William-Manassas Regional Adult Detention Center.  On November 2003, he was elected Sheriff of Prince William County and is currently serving as Chairman for the Prince William-Manassas Regional Jail Board.  Sheriff Hill has more than five decades (53 years) of law enforcement experience in Manassas City and Prince William County.  On November 2019, he was re-elected to serve his fifth term.
