John Miller

 Officer John Miller

Today in BPD History 7 Nov 1979, our Brother John Miller suffered two gunshot wounds during a confrontation with a mentally disturbed man on the old Central District parking lot across Fayette St from the main post office entrance. After being shot P/O Miller was able to get into his truck and drive towards Headquarters to seek help. At Fayette and Fallsway he spotted a patrol car - it was officers Carl Broeseker and Billy Anderson also of the Central District's Operations unit who were headed towards the station near the end of their 1700-0100 shift.
When Officer Miller stopped next to them and told them what had happened they quickly transferred him from his vehicle to theirs and rushed him to Mercy Hospital.

These officers saved their Brothers life that night, and while they were never formally recognized for what they did! We will always be grateful to them and to all who participated in the man hunt that led to the arrest of the man who shot our Brother Police Officer John Miller and the recovery of Officer Miller 's weapon.

Tough lessons learned by a very young officer!

Thanks Again Billy and Carl!!
