Jennifer Miller was promoted to sergeant during the Jan. 9 meeting of the Frankston City Council. Miller has been working with the Frankston Police Department since 2010. Chief Darren Goodman, who pinned her new sergeant badge, said the first time he met her was during a burglary in progress. With no advance knowledge of her fellow police officer, Miller and Goodman entered a house and took a suspect by gunpoint. “She had no hesitation and a ‘get it done’ attitude,” the chief said. Since then, Miller has become a criminal investigator for the department. “She is an asset to the municipal judge and the court. She has a vast knowledge of the law,” the chief said. Mayor Eugene Brooks congratulated Miller and thanked her for the work she does for the city.
