Nowata County Deputy Rick


Miller has gone as far as a
person can go in the Council on
Law Enforcement Education and
Training, achieving his advanced
certification.
Miller, a former Nowata police
chief, accumulated sufficient years
of service and training combined
to receive the certification. He
has long been an advocate for
law enforcement officers getting
as much training as possible and
as is available.
Although unsure of the number
of law enforcement officers in
the state with advanced CLEET
certification, its likely not a very
large number and that makes
Miller stand out.
I have basic, intermediate and
advanced. Thats about as far as
you can go, he said, pointing to
the lengthy list of courses hes
taken and the massive number
of training hours.
With 1,418 hours, he also has

990 hours of mandatory training


and 33 hours of mental health
training since he started his
CLEET training in 1999.
Thats how long Ive been in
Nowata County, he said of the
year he started his training.
Courses were taken wherever
offered, from Claremore to Okmulgee to Broken Arrow and other
sites. Miller recently completed
eight hours of mandatory CLEET
training in Craig County, and with
so much training and experience
under his belt, he could teach
others.
All Id have to do is go down
and take one course to instruct,
said Miller.
The only thing I can do thats
left is get my instructor certification
and be a CLEET instructor. Theres
nowhere else to go but being a
CLEET instructor is not really his
end goal.
