A Message from the Sheriff
Welcome to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office Web Site. This site was developed to help keep the citizens of Douglas County informed of crime and of happenings that involve the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.
It has been an honor to have served as your Sheriff since 2001 and I sincerely want to thank each of you for the trust and support you have given me throughout the years. Your input and suggestions are important and we will continue to be available to you, while working diligently to protect the lives and property in Douglas County.
My father was Thad Miller, who retired as the Chief of Police with the Douglasville Police Department in 1978. I became a Law Enforcement Officer in Douglas County in 1971 and my son, Joshua Miller, has followed the tradition and is currently an Investigator with the Douglas County Sheriff's Office. My wife Gloria, and I have been married for 36 years and we also have a daughter, Whitney, who is 23. Gloria and I are proud grandparents to our four year old grandson, Kevin Phillip Miller, who we love more than life. We were all born and raised in Douglas County and we all still proudly live here.
I am a graduate of the FBI National Academy, Sheriff's Academy, Georgia Police Academy, Drug Enforcement Academy and dozens of schools and seminars relating to Law Enforcement and management. I was the Douglasville Police Departments first Detective. I worked in the Detective Division at the Douglas County Sheriff's Office for 14 years, then as Major in charge of that Division and became Chief Deputy in 1989. I was second in command under the last two Sheriff's. I have served five years on P.O.S.T. Council, the agency that regulates all Law Enforcement Officers in Georgia. I am on the Legislative Committee for the Georgia Sheriff's Association, The Board of Directors for the North Georgia Police Academy, National Sheriff's Association, Georgia Sheriff's Association, FBINA Associates, IACP and Flint Hill Masonic Lodge. I also partner with the Boys and Girls Club and I am associated with many social and civic activities within the community.
If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me or one of my employees. Thank you for coming to our Web Site, I hope you enjoy it.
Phil D. Miller
