GREENVILLE, S.C. — Greensboro Police Chief Ken Miller has been named the next police chief of the Greenville Police Department in Greenville, South Carolina.
Miller’s last day with the department is expected to be Aug. 31, 2014. Miller had announced earlier this month his plans to retire as Chief of Police in Greensboro between Sept. 1 and Dec. 31.
Miller became police chief of the Greensboro Police Department in 2010 after 21 years of service with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. He has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and political science from East Tennessee State University and a master’s degree in public administration from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
The city of Greenville said it received 87 applications for the position from law enforcement officials from 26 states.
Moving forward, the City has already initiated the hiring of a consultant to guide the selection for a new police chief. The hiring process will be led by City Manager Jim Westmoreland and his staff.
