The village of Campton Hills announced Friday that Steven M. Millar will be the community’s next chief of police.
Millar will take the reins from Chief Dan Hoffman, who is retiring May 31, 2018.
Millar, a full-time Campton Hills police officer who has been with the village for five years, was chosen from an applicant pool of 36 candidates. Before joining Campton Hills, he served 25 years as a police officer for the village of Streamwood.
“We are lucky to have an officer with Steve Millar’s qualification and experience,” Campton Hills Village President Harry Blecker said. “Not only does he have tremendous amount of law enforcement experience having worked in a larger community and department, but his integrity is second to none, and his people skills are exceptional.”
Millar’s responsibilities at Streamwood included D.A.R.E. Officer, juvenile officer, accident reconstructionist, court liaison, crime prevention, community relations officer and investigator. He selected in 1996 to supervise a 62-man team responsible for providing security at several of the Atlanta Olympic Games locations.
Since joining Campton Hills, Millar has worked as a Too Good for Drugs instructor and has been instrumental in developing the village’s citizen police academy program.
Millar has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Benedictine University, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude.
