Interim South Pasadena Police Chief Art Miller will take his oath of office during a public ceremony at 3 p.m. Monday, in the city council chambers, located at 1424 Mission St.
City Manager Sergio Gonzalez has announced Miller's appointment, following former Police Chief Joseph Payne resignation earlier this month, after a 40-year career with the South Pasadena Police Department.
Miller joins South Pasadena with more than 34 years of experience in law enforcement. A retired captain for the Los Angeles Police Department, Miller was in charge of LAPD’s Metropolitan, Southwest and Hollywood Divisions.
“I am genuinely excited about the opportunity and am looking forward to working with the department, city staff, city council and the community,” Miller stated in a press release.
"We’re very fortunate to have him join our city, and I am confident that he will serve our city very well,'' Gonzalez said in a prepared statement.
