The New Year will begin with a new man taking the helm at the California Highway Patrol’s Riverside station, it was announced Thursday.
Capt. Levi Miller will officially assume his new duties on Jan. 1, taking the place of former station commander Capt. Tai Vong, who has already started working in the agency’s training division in Sacramento, according to the CHP.
“Riverside holds a special place in my family history,” Miller said. “My great grandparents moved to Riverside from the Midwest in the 1920s, and they raised their family here. I am grateful and humbled to be back in this community and to serve alongside the women and men who are dedicated each day to providing the highest level of `Safety, Service and Security’ to the people of California.”
Miller most recently supervised the CHP’s Bakersfield office, and prior to that, worked as an administrator for the Inland Division in San Bernardino.
His 22-year career began with patrol assignments in East Los Angeles, followed by deployment to several posts in San Bernardino County, according to the CHP.
