On Tuesday, Jan. 2, re­serve officer Carl Miller, accompanied by his wife Denise and their five chil­dren, took the oath of office becoming Topeka’s fourth full-time police deputy.

Miller is no stranger to the law enforcement fam­ily, having been a reserve with Topeka for four years. Prior to moving to Topeka, he was a reserve for Ship­shewana for 6-and-a-half years. Miller has also been a volunteer firefighter with both Shipshewana and To­peka.

“I am really happy to announce the promotion of Carl Miller from our re­serve program to full-time officer with the Topeka Po­lice Department,” said To­peka Town Marshal Stan Strater Jr. “I believe that he is going to be a strong asset. He lives right here in the community and did well as a reserve. I am very grateful to have him full time with our agency.”

Miller will be attending the police academy later in the year.
