Former Supervisor Puts Bill Prim in “Top Echelon in Law Enforcement Knowledge & Abilities”

A press release from the Bill Prim for Sheriff committee:

BILL PRIM FOR SHERIFF ENDORSEMENT

My name is Charles Hiscock.

I’ve worked closely with Bill Prim in both investigative and intelligence work and have found him to be a tell-it-like-it-is person of unshakable integrity, ability, dedication and focus.

Although I’m now retired, based on my forty plus years of exposure to a broad gamut of local, state, federal and foreign law enforcement officers at all levels, I would place Bill in the top echelon in terms of

  • law enforcement knowledge and
  • abilities

In addition, I found that he has a uniquely analytic mind, which is quick to identify problems and develop solutions that are based on the impartial viewpoints and goals of a true team player.

For several years, I was privileged to manage the Combined Agency Border Intelligence Network (CABINET).

CABINET was a highly effective multi-national and multi-agency intelligence center, based in Chicago, which had a worldwide tactical enforcement impact.

We had on and off-site representatives from foreign countries, multiple federal agencies and the military.

I asked Bill to accept the critical responsibility of functioning as the sole CABINET liaison to state and local police.

Bill, quite simply, did a superb job in that role.

The oft-cited difficulties between federal and state and local police organizations became nonexistent..

Bill Prim was campaigning at his home town Cary Expo on Saturday.

About Charles Hiscock:

Mr. Hiscock has an extensive background in law enforcement, intelligence, and program management.

He began his career with US Customs as a sky marshal and gained an unusually broad scope of practical experience within that agency by holding journeyman, supervisory and management positions in uniformed enforcement, investigative, and intelligence disciplines.

As Director of then Vice-President Bush’s Northern Border Office of the National Narcotics Border Interdiction System, he was responsible for interagency coordination of all drug interdiction efforts on the Canadian border from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

As Director of then Vice-President Bush’s Northern Border Office of the National Narcotics Border Interdiction System, he was responsible for interagency coordination of all drug interdiction efforts on the Canadian border from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

He has managed intelligence and investigative task forces and was qualified to testify in court as an expert on West African heroin trafficking. The unique analytic approaches to the generation of effective tactical intelligence developed under his management of the multi-national and multi-agency Combined Agency Border Intelligence Network, still serve as a foundation of tactical enforcement analysis in several nations.

Internationally, he mentored the development of a Customs Patrol force in Karachi, and taught drug interdiction and investigation in Pakistan and Malaysia. As an advisor for the UK financed Reform in Revenue Administration project in Bangladesh, he oversaw the creation of the Central Intelligence Cell (CIC) within the National Board of Revenue (NBR). He guided the CIC in the comparative analysis of raw information contained within the files of the three NBR business lines, VAT, Customs, and Income, for fraud.

This process resulted in regulatory and legal changes as well as significant increases in national revenue.

He was Chief of Party for the State Department’s Export Control and Related Border Security (EXBS) program as well as the World Bank funded Southeast European Cooperative Initiative in Bucharest, Romania for two years, and served for six years as the Senior Advisor, EXBS, in Baku, Azerbaijan and Tbilisi, Georgia. On April 26, 2011, he retired capping forty plus years of domestic and international law enforcement.

The quality and impact of his work was formally recognized by two Vice-Presidents; the Director, FBI; several countries worldwide; and many federal and state prosecutors. Other commendations include the US Customs Commissioner’s Strategic Problem Solving Team Award, three Commissioner’s Unit Citations, and the International Narcotics Enforcement Officers Association Customs Award.

Most recently, he was the first diplomat of any nation to be awarded the Chairman’s Medal, State Customs Committee, Republic of Azerbaijan. In 2007, he was honored to receive the State Department’s Gessner Award. This award recognizes one EXBS advisor each year for accomplishments deemed most significant to the control of the international movement of weapons of mass destruction.

Former Supervisor Puts Bill Prim in “Top Echelon in Law Enforcement Knowledge & Abilities” — 25 Comments

  1. That’s an endorsement?

    It sounds more like a desperate pleaded from Bill Prim’s buddy.

    I was also wondering, does Charles Hiscock live in McHenry County, or is he just another outsider like Duncan that has no concerns in this county that will affect him personally.

  2. What a great endorsement !! !! and some people actually think Mr. Zinky is qualified.

    Talk about education and experience, I think Mr. Prim has him beat in all areas.

  3. “Fukoku Kyohei” or whoever or whatever you are, I’ve met some people who are very, very small inside, however, you make THEM look like giants.

    The smell in McHenry County needs to be flushed out.

    Open the doors and the windows, give Prim a chance to clean house.

  4. Does it best serve the residents of McHenry County having a parochial Sheriff’s Department?

    The previous posting suggests that a person who may have served with distinction in a Federal office not be allowed to publish endorsements from his superiors?

    Because they would not be personally affected by the election to public office of that person?

    I trust this opinion is isolated and not indicative of the majority in our County.

    Shortsighted, to say the least!

  5. Please Fukoku, go read a book, clean the floor,take out the garbage, do something other than make comments on this blog !!!!!!!!!!

    Lets have people who make sense and can have a real conversation
    .

  6. anonymous, I am simply an old man waiting to die enjoying you clowns scrambling as the Prim Ship Lollop is sinking rapidly.

    As for voter, back at you buddy.

  7. Fuk – You have NO credibility.

    First you are a grandma.

    Then so many other things.

    Now you are an old man.

    You have some serious issues that need to be addressed.

    Too many moons in your world.

  8. Fukoku must have a serious problem and we should just ignore his posts
    and continue with the important issues.

    We should not comment back to him as he clearly has an illness.

    Bill Prim will restore McHenry County !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Argument from authority.

    Zinke 2014

    Btw, anyone else get a hit piece in the mail today?

  10. Well, I never stated that I was a grandmother FYI, you are confused with the facts stated by the delusional Duncan as you are confused to is the right man to lead our Sheriff’s Office, Undersheriff Andrew Zinke.

    All I can say about voter is that if you don’t agree with him, you have an illness.

    Also, if you don’t wish for me to comment to you directly, restrain yourself from commenting to me directly. It is really that simple.

  11. Hmmm…Hiscock what an interesting name…worked for Customs…

    Wasn’t Bianchi’s former right hand man named Phil Hiscock?

    Didn’t he go work for the Customs service?

    So did a relative help get the job at Customs?

    And then did Hiscock recruit a family friend to be Bianchi’s guy in the Sheriff’s Department?

    Something tells me there is much more to this sudden “endorsement”.

    So did this guys son or nephew happen to be the Phil Hiscock who was Bianchi’s right hand man?

    Makes me laugh a bit when I think about how Prim talked at the debate something about his skill in forging a relationship with Bianchi.

    Perhaps a bit of family friend nepotisim?

  12. Despite the above endorsement I went to MCCC last week and observed the debate between the two candidates.

    There were no contest between these two candidates.

    Mr. Prim did not show knowledge and aptitude needed for running such important department of the McHenry County Government.

    I already voted yesterday and my vote went for Mr. Zinke.

  13. Flat earth, Zinke no where near has the qualifications and experience Prim does.

    Zinke was fast tracked to be Nygren’s clone and has produced NOTHING.

    He rattled off a lot of BS in the debate like a used car salesman.

    Bill did have the flu and that was unfortunate.

    Did not have a good mike either.

    Zinke’s lies will catch up with him, just wait.

    I remember Obama LOOKED GOOD TOO!!

  14. Voter, breakfast sounds great!

    The county seat is Woodstock, anyone know a good diner there?

  15. To Flat Earth and Fukoku and anyone else trying to prop up Andy Zinke

    Don’t you think he’s playing the media by commenting on a Kane County Sheriff’s case in Huntley (where Zinke’s initial involvemet would be limited) and also his comments on WBBM today on a matter that was im the City of Woodstock’s jurisdiction.

    Didn’t the Woodstock Chief endorse Zinke? and is her now boosting the P.R. for the omnipresent Sheriff’s candidate?

  16. Did you see Zinky has another fund raiser at a shooting range of all places.

    Who wants to meet anyone at a gun range.

    No class

  17. Oh, now we’re attacking a local business?

    I’d be careful there-those guns just might pick themselves up and do some harm.

    How stupid

  18. Just as stupid as attacking a persons cowboy boots?

    Sounds like Zinky wants to play and not be serious about the campaign.

    He shouldn’t be celebrating so soon.

    I’m sure this is a great business for its purpose but not a fundraiser.

    Just another fun night out for the boys.

    It is comforting to know Bill Prim is serious about the citizens of McHenry.

  19. Will someone tell Zinke that the voting is March 18.

    By his fundraiser he thinks he has won already.

    Come meet the next Sheriff is a sign that he thinks people don’t have to vote.

    How more humble can this guy get.

  20. Nothing says that “I support 2nd Amendment rights of gun owners” than a fundraiser at a shooting range.

    Sour grapes from the Regime that Bill “Tex” Prim didn’t think of it first.

    A six shooter on his hip & Tex would have been a sight to see.

  21. Another great press release.

    It may have been a while ago but it shows another great quality of Prim’s.

    As the article comments go back to another time the article stands.

    Read again the article above and vote for Prim and bring back honor and experience to the Sheriff’s department.
