Lt. JT Miller, an 18-year veteran of the New Brunswick Police Department, was promoted to Captain at a swearing-in ceremony conducted by Mayor James Cahill earlier this month.
Captain Miller joined the NBPD in 1994, and served in the Patrol Division where he was a member of the Neighborhood Police Team, and from 1998 to 2002 he served as a Detective in the Major Crimes Unit.
In 2002, Miller was promoted to Sergeant and was the Executive Officer in the Major Crimes and Homicide Unit.
Miller was promoted to Lieutenant in 2005, and since that time has served in a variety of roles including Commander of the Criminal Investigations Division, Municipal Counter Terrorism Coordinator, Public Information Officer, Traffic Safety & Enforcement Unit Supervisor and Internal Affairs Supervisor. He also created and served as Supervisor of the Police Department’s Marine Unit.
“The citizens of New Brunswick are fortunate to have JT Miller as a member of its Police Department. His knowledge, drive and commitment makes New Brunswick a safer City,” Mayor James Cahill said.
“Captain Miller has excelled in every rank and position that he has held throughout his career. New Brunswick will benefit by having Captain Miller as part of the police department’s command staff which is responsible for ensuring the protection of our community, the integrity of our police department and the safety of our officers,” Police Director Anthony Caputo said.
In addition to his usual duties, Captain Miller has applied for and received several grants for the New Brunswick Police Department totaling more than $5 million. Two of the grants facilitated the hiring of 14 officers who had been laid-off from surrounding municipalities.
Captain Miller is a graduate of Rutgers University with a BA in Administration of Justice, and has a Masters Degree in Human Resource Management from Seton Hall University.
