PARSIPPANY – Mayor Michael Soriano is proud to announce that Captain Andrew Miller will be promoted to Chief of the Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Department, effective March 1.

“Over the past two months, it has been a true honor to get to know the men and women of Parsippany’s police force, including our senior leadership,” Soriano said.  “After an extensive decision-making process and careful consideration of every eligible candidate, as well as the recent tragedy in Florida, I came to the conclusion that Captain Miller is my choice to the lead the department, particularly during these troubled times.”

“This was not an easy decision,” Soriano continued.  “Deputy Chief Richard Pantina and Captain Jay Weiners embody the spirit of public service that we need in this township and this country.  I am proud to have both of them in senior leadership positions in our department.

Captain Miller has served with the Parsippany Police Department for twenty-six years, most recently serving as commander of the Investigative Division.  In addition to eight years of honorable service in the New Jersey Army National Guard, he holds a Master’s Degree in Administrative Science from Farleigh Dickinson University.  He is also the recipient of eleven awards and commendations from the Parsippany Police Department, including the Exceptional Duty Medal and Life Saving Award.

“Having proudly served the Parsippany Police Department for twenty-six years, it is with great excitement that I accept the honor of serving as Chief of Police,” Miller commented.  “This incredible opportunity is owed to the Parsippany Police Officers who I’ve worked for and with over the years, whose leadership, influence and shared job experiences provide the knowledge and ability necessary for me to assume this trust.  To Mayor Michael Soriano, your confidence and trust in me is greatly appreciated.”

Miller continued, “We all congratulate Chief Paul Philipps on his well-deserved retirement after thirty-eight years of highly dedicated service to the law enforcement community.

Chief Paul Philipps will retire on March 1, after thirty-eight years of service to the Parsippany Police Department.

“Although we did not have the opportunity to work together for very long, I have a deep respect for Chief Philipps’ dedication to this township,” Soriano said.  “I know that Andrew Miller will continue the commitment to excellence that has been demonstrated by the Parsippany Police Department since its founding, and I look forward to our residents seeing the innovative and purposeful ideas he will bring to our community.”
