Hill has amassed a significant buzz on social media for years. This attention comes from his supporters, urban-legend status and even controversies.

Hill's combined social media persona reaches into the thousands, and ironically much of it complimentary of his law enforcement tactics, protocols and approach to criminals in Clayton County. With the exception of a few notable political figures in D.C., Hill is one of the most mentioned law officials in the United States.
