Police Chief Rodney Miller

Full Time Officer: Brandon Shuherk

I started my career in law enforcement attending Vantage Police Academy, graduating in July of 2013, I started as a part time dispatcher and dog warden for the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office. I also worked as a reserve Officer at both Paulding and Payne Police Deparments. I would go on to become a full-time dispatcher until April of 2017 when I started full-time at the Hicksville Police Department. I worked at Hicksville until October of 2022, when I accepted a position with the Paulding Police Department.

I always had an interest in becoming some sort of first responder due to my dad being on Payne Fire and EMS. I would always watch Dad come to the rescue of complete strangers and always wanted to be like him and help people. While employed at Hicksville I was the Officer in charge of the evidence room, which included keeping inventory, ensuring all pieces of property were properly packaged in accordance with BCI’s policies, and transporting items to the State Lab in Bowling green.
