Miller began his 23-year career with the ICSO as a patrol deputy in 1999, after working for UNC Charlotte Police and Public Safety. 

In 2002 Miller became a canine handler and worked with Canine Quiny for seven years. In 2003 he joined the Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team, a highly specialized unit primarily responsible for responding to hostage situations, barricaded criminals, executing high-risk search warrants, arrest warrant services, and other situations that exceed the scope of standard law enforcement officer tactics, training, and resources. After four years on the team, Miller became the SERT sniper.

In 2006 he was promoted to sergeant with the Aggressive Criminal Enforcement (ACE) Team. Three years later he transferred to Patrol Division as a sergeant. In 2010, Miller was promoted to lieutenant and supervised the ACE Team.

In 2012 Miller became the Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team commander. In 2015 he transferred to detective sergeant in the Criminal Investigation Division. In 2018 Major Miller transferred to Narcotics Investigations as a Drug Diversion detective, and in July of 2021, he was promoted to captain over the Enforcement Division.

Miller earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from Western Carolina University in 1997. In 2005, he earned his Advanced Law Enforcement Certificate from the N.C. Sheriff’s Education and Training Standards Commission.
