During his tenure, Miller has held the positions of sergeant, commander, assistant chief of police and now chief of police. Miller also served as the assistant commander and commander of the North Tarrant Regional SWAT team, the city said in a news release.

Miller is a graduate of the FBI National Academy, the FBI Command College and the International Law Enforcement Administration’s (ILEA) School of Police Supervision.
