Pismo Beach Police Chief Jake Miller is retiring.
Chief Miller was first hired by the Pismo Beach Police Department in 1994 and worked his way up through every rank in the department, eventually being appointed chief in 2014.
"Having the opportunity and privilege to be a police officer was only surpassed by the ability to perform it over an entire career here in Pismo Beach. To be honored with leading the agency, that was truly a blessing even I was not sure I deserved every day. My depth of gratitude is not expressible to our entire community, the City Council, and the men and women of the Pismo Beach Police Department. It truly is the finest police department in the nation," Miller said.
Chief Miller's retirement will be effective on April 1.
The city says the recruitment process for a new chief is expected to take several months.
