News Briefs: Kenilworth police chief to retire, student artwork at village hall, storytelling event Thursday
Village of Kenilworth Police Chief David Miller announced that after 28 years in local law enforcement he will retire at the end of the month.
Miller began with the Kenilworth Police Department in 1994 and became its chief in 2013.
“The Village of Kenilworth is fortunate that for almost three decades, Chief Miller has served our residents marvelously, with integrity and a community focused approach,” Village President Cecily Kaz said in a statement. “As such a familiar and approachable presence in our village, we will certainly miss him, but we are happy that he will be able to enjoy a well-deserved retirement.”
In a press release, the Village credited Miller with an important transition to a regional emergency dispatch operation.
“There is no room for error when managing emergency dispatch transitions,” Kaz said. “Chief Miller ensured that the transition was seamless and superbly communicated to the residents.”
While the Village of Kenilworth is searching for a full-time replacement, it will soon name an interim police chief.
“It has been an honor serving the residents of Kenilworth during my entire police career,” Miller said in the release.
