City of Westminster Hires Frederick Miller as Chief of Police





The City of Westminster City Council unanimously appointed Frederick Miller as the City’s next Chief of Police at the April 2, 2024 Special Called City Council Meeting. Chief Miller brings an impressive 30 years of law enforcement experience and a commitment of public service to Westminster.

Chief Miller, an Anderson native, has served in various capacities across the Upstate since 1994. This includes as Sergeant Uniform Patrol, Deputy Sherrif, and Community Liaison. As a Sergeant at the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, Chief Miller supervises over 25 deputies for each shift and responds to events with his platoon while providing supervision and strategic leadership to younger officers. Miller brings skills of administrative duties, community relations, and investigations, including international experience as a contracted criminal investigator with the European Union for four years (2007-2010).

Chief Miller will begin on May 6, 2024 and will oversee the Police Department’s 8 sworn officers, provide regular reports to City Council, and engage citizens to enrich a sense of community safety. His extensive experience as a leader in law enforcement will prove invaluable for leading the department towards greater achievements.

The City extends its gratitude to Interim Chief of Police Caitlin Pope for her leadership and the stability that she provided for the past 5 months throughout this transition. Caitlin Pope will continue to serve Westminster as Assistant Chief of Police.

“I want to thank City Council and the City Administrator for entrusting me to lead such a great group of men and women. I look forward to serving the community of Westminster,” said Chief Miller.

The City welcomes Chief Miller to Westminster and enthusiastically anticipates the impact of his leadership for our department and community. The Westminster Senior Outreach will host a welcome reception for Chief Miller in the coming weeks.
