Sergeant MILLER was my second supervisor back in 1982 at police headquarters when I was a young 21 year old constable working with a group of other young members. Keith's influence on me back then continues to this day. He was a patient but firm disciplinarian only in order to shape our minds into people of high standard when it came to professionalism, integrity, fairness and perfection to name just a few. He took policing seriously and was proud to serve. I learned a lot from Keith. I saw how he interacted with the public on a daily basis. He must of coined the term "customer service" because that is what he did day in and day out. If we did not have our reports up to standard he would remind us that "second best just doesn't cut it". Keith taught me so many things which I contribute to my careers successes. I am honored and proud to have worked for Sergeant Keith. I had to smile when I saw how long he was blessed to have lived because this was a kind man that stood up for what was right and truly deserved to have had a long life. My condolences to Keith's family as you have truly lost a gem. Keith if you are looking down at me, did I get the grammar and spelling right this time? God Bless,
Det. Roland Burandt EPS Homicide Section
