Honored City PD officer retires after 21 years of service

NORWICH – Thursday marked the end of over two decades of service for a local police officer.

Assistant Chief Van Miles has served the public trust since 1986 and has been a Norwich City Police officer for the last twenty.

“My primary consideration is my family. My wife has stayed with me through all the rotating shifts, all the late nights, and she was there after a lot of the bad times. For the sake of my own family I need to find something else to do while I’m still young enough to do it,” said Miles.



Miles has accepted a position as a sale representative at Christman Motor Sales, along South Broad Street in Norwich. “Both my family and I are looking forward to my new job. I’m bringing with me an honest reputation of integrity and fairness. I hate to say it, but it will be nice to deal with people who aren’t in the disposition of being, upset, irritated or dangerous, like you commonly encounter as a police officer.
