Hillary Hoon,


In 1999, Hillary Hoon started a career in banking, working as a teller and then Lead Supervisor at a branch in San Diego. During seven years in the banking industry, she experienced two incidents that really hit home. On a day she was assigned to assist a nearby short-staffed branch, her home branch was robbed by three male adults brandishing firearms. Thankfully, no one was injured. But in the aftermath, Hillary was haunted by guilt and curiosity about what she could have done to help. Seeing the fear in her colleagues' eyes showed her the damage fear can cause.

Several months later, it was Hillary's turn to be robbed. This time, the suspect walked up and placed a note in front of her with a blank stare on his face. Hillary was upset and felt helpless because she had always been taught to hand over whatever the robber requested. But, that was not what she wanted to do. As the robber exited the bank, Hillary pursued him, getting valuable, detailed information about the vehicle he was driving, and which way he fled. The authorities caught him right before he escaped to Mexico. Hillary realized that day that she was not meant to work in that type of environment - she was meant to join the Sheriff's Department.

Switching career paths to Law enforcement, Hillary attended the Riverside County Sheriff's Department Sworn Academy. Initially assigned to the corrections division after graduating in 2008, she assisted in the development of the gang unit at that facility conducting interviews, investigating crimes inside and outside the facility, and assisting with sworn operations in the field. After that assignment, she was transferred to patrol in mid-Riverside County where she also assisted in the investigative bureau. In 2014, Hillary retired from the Sheriff's Department to stay home and raise the family she shares with her husband, Ken. She has since started her own independent business.
