Cheverly Police Department to make history on Thursday, December 12th, 2019.
At the regularly scheduled December town meeting, Chief Towers will have the pleasure of swearing-in Georgia Miltenberger, as Cheverly Police Department’s first female, and first African American, lieutenant in the department’s 88-year history. After two searches, spanning nearly three and a half months, Georgia Miltenberger, undoubtedly stuck out as the best candidate for the Cheverly community. Miltenberger, until her most recent appointment as Cheverly’s second-in-command, had served as the Chief of Police for both the Town of Cottage City and the Town of Colmar Manor.
Miltenberger brings with her a diverse perspective and a proven track record for being a 21st century policing executive. Miltenberger was born in Asmara, Ethiopia. As a military child, she moved to Hawaii where she lived for 6 years before moving to Washington, D.C., when her father, a Sergeant Major in the Army, was transferred to Bolling Air Force Base. At the age of ten, Miltenberger relocated to Prince George’s County where she attended and graduated from Crossland High School. Miltenberger, now a mother of three adult children, remains a resident of Prince George’s County.
Having served in municipal policing for nearly two decades, Miltenberger is a seasoned law enforcement executive who has been referred to as a community policing expert and has a proven track record for being fiscally responsible, transparent, and accountable.
Chief Towers invites the community to join the department in welcoming our next second-in-command at an informal reception, beginning at 7:15 pm in the Cheverly Community Center, located at 6401 Forest Road, Cheverly, MD 20785.
