Durham sheriff to step down
Posted September 22, 2011
Durham, N.C. — Durham County Sheriff Worth Hill said Thursday that he plans to leave his position at the end of the year.
Hill, who has served as sheriff since 1994 and was elected to a fifth term last year, said he wanted to spend more time with his ailing wife.
A Durham native, Hill spent almost 30 years with the Durham Police Department before retiring in 1988 as a major.
There was no immediate word on who would succeed him as sheriff.
