News in Brief: Kenilworth Police Chief to retire, student artwork at village hall, storytelling event on Thursday

Kenilworth Village Police Chief David Miller has announced that after 28 years in local law enforcement he will be retiring at the end of the month.

Miller started with the Kenilworth Police Department in 1994 and became its chief in 2013.

“The Village of Kenilworth is fortunate that for nearly three decades Chief Miller has served our residents wonderfully, 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, he will certainly be missed, but we are happy that he can enjoy a well-deserved retirement.”

In a news release, the village credited Miller with a significant transition to a regional emergency dispatch operation.

“There is no room for error when handling emergency dispatch transitions,” Kaz said. “Chief Miller ensured the transition was smooth and well communicated to residents.”

As the Village of Kenilworth searches for a full-time replacement, they will soon be appointing an interim Chief Constable.

“It has been an honor to serve the people of Kenilworth throughout my career in policing,” Miller said in the statement.
