The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office is mourning the loss of Captain Gary Miller. Miller passed away on Saturday, Aug. 25 after battling an illness. 

He was the Commander of the Sheriff’s Office Substation in Pontiac. Miller’s career was spent helping others; he was also a top detective in the Sheriff’s Special Investigations Unit for many years.

“Captain Miller began his career with the Oakland County Sheriff's Office 32 years ago to the day - August 25, 1986. His distinguished career led him through many areas of the agency including the Pontiac Substation where his leadership as the Substation Commander has left a meaningful impact on the entire city. The void Captain Miller leaves behind is being felt by all today, especially those who worked for him at the Pontiac Substation,” said Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard.

Capt. Miller was also the co-founder of the Deputies for Kids non-profit organization. He was a devoted father, and the type of person who worked every day to make his community a better and safer place.
