One local lawman has received an honorable title from veterans.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars chapter recognized Hans Miller as "Peace Officer of the Year" in Jacksonville.
Miller currently serves as police chief at Albert J. Ellis airport in Onslow County. Before that he worked with the sheriff's department, and the State Bureau of Investigation.
It's been rumored Miller will run for sheriff of Onslow County. He tells us he and Sheriff Brown have had conversations about that. Miller says it's likely his name will be on the ballot for sheriff by the election year 2014.
