Chief Bence Hoyle was recently named president of the North Carolina Association of Chiefs of Police (NCACP) at the group’s 2015 annual training conference in Cherokee, NC. NCACP membership is open to local, county, state and federal law enforcement agency heads as well as campus and tribal police chiefs. The association provides Chief's of Police in NC with executive training, mentoring, and legislative advocacy as well as participation on various state boards and committees.
Hoyle has been in law enforcement in North Carolina for more than 26 years, 20 of those years in Northern Mecklenburg County. He joined the NCACP in 1990 and served as a Regional Director for many years before being selected to serve as an officer for the past five years. Locally, he led Cornelius Police Department through three consecutive national accreditations with the Commission on Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). He currently serves on the North Carolina Next Generation 911 Committee and the Executive Committee of the NC Law Enforcement Information Exchange (Linx).
Hoyle holds a Bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice from Western Carolina University and Master’s degree in Justice Administration from Methodist University.
“The chiefs association has helped me for over 25 years and I am honored to be selected to serve in this role. However, the president is only one of many police chief's across this state serving the association through representation on various committees, advocating for public safety legislation, sharing experience and expertise with other chiefs. We are a member-driven organization that truly advocates for the best interest of our communities and we are very proud of that.”
