Rick Hileman Day Proclaimed

Adams County commissioners proclaimed Nov. 16 as Chief Richard Hileman II Day in Adams County “for his exceptional and dedicated service,” according to the proclamation. Hileman dedicated three decades of service to Carroll Valley and the Adams County community. Beginning as a patrol officer in Carroll Valley in 1992, Hileman moved up the ranks as criminal investigator in 1994 and chief of police in 1997, the proclamation reads. Hileman was known as “an advocate and facilitator” for driving under the influence (DUI) enforcement, victims of sexual assault, D.A.R.E. Drug Education programs, Adams County emergency radio system, Adams County Chiefs of Police, and CrimeNet Records System, the proclamation reads. Additionally, Hileman served as interim Carroll Valley Borough manager, “was a key facilitator in getting laptops in patrol vehicles” throughout the county, was a strong supporter of the Adams County Law Enforcement Firearms Training Range and played an important part for 25 years in the annual Gettysburg re-enactment, according to the proclamation.
