Ada County Sheriff’s Deputy Gary Miller of the Kuna City Police was recognized recently for 25 years of service with the ACSO, an honor bestowed by Ada County Sheriff Gary Raney, who presented Miller with the ACSO’s “25-year coin” and reminisced about the days when both were rookie police officers working together at the jail.
Of his 25 years of service, Miller has spent the last decade policing the streets of Kuna, said ACSO Lt. Kody Aldrich, Kuna’s chief of police.
“Deputy Miller has helped numerous community members,” Aldrich said, noting it’s not uncommon to spot Miller having lunch at the senior center or talking to kids at the park between calls. “He has a very caring heart and truly tries to get to know people so he can serve them better.”
In addition to recognition from the ACSO, Miller and his wife Charlene were honored as “Hometown Heroes” by Farmer’s Insurance at the Nov. 2 BSU football game.
The award recognizes the couple’s 38 years of combined law enforcement service in the Treasure Valley.
