Sheriff Jim Brueggeman has announced the addition of a new deputy who began law enforcement duties with the Perkins County Sheriff’s Office on Dec. 29, 2010.

The new deputy, Jeffrey Scott Miller, will perform road patrol duties.

A road patrol position was left open when Kip Bradley was promoted to Chief Deputy and Kris Larson was promoted to Sergeant back in October.

Miller has come to Perkins County from Mission Viejo, Calif. In sharing background, Sheriff Brueggeman said Miller is a a graduate of Capistrano Valley High School in Mission Viejo and is slated to earn an associates degree from Fullerton College in Fullerton, Calif. this spring.

Miller, also a graduate of the Fullerton College Police Academy, holds an Administration of Justice (law enforcement) certificate in the state of

California.

“We are pleased to have Scott on board as a deputy sheriff with our agency and feel fortunate to have found someone with Scott’s qualifications and

overwhelming desire to pursue a law enforcement career during our hiring process,” said Sheriff Brueggeman. “I believe Scott will fit in well with our existing staff and his family with the Perkins County community.”

Brueggeman said Miller is is applying for admission to the reciprocity training program with the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center in Grand Island where he will obtain his Nebraska law enforcement certificate.

He is currently completing the field training program at the Perkins County Sheriff’s Office with Sergeant Kris Larson to become familiar with the operations, policies and procedures of the Perkins County Sheriff’s Office before beginning patrol duties on his

own.

The new deputy will be joined in Grant by his wife, Stephanie, and two-year-old daughter, Savannah, once housing arrangements are put in place over the next several weeks, said Brueggeman.

Besides Brueggeman, Miller joins Chief Deputy Kip Bradley, Sergeant Kris Larson and Deputy Blake Smidt in providing law enforcement services to the residents of Perkins County.
