Jasper Columbus Miller

Police Officer Jasper Miller was shot and killed while serving a warrant on an illegal liquor establishment on Old Great Bridge Road in West Munden.

During the search the officers arrested several subjects. Officer Miller left those subjects with the other two officers and began searching the rest of the house. As he entered a hallway he was confronted by a man with a shotgun who opened fire, instantly killing Officer Miller. The man fled but was apprehended the following day.

Officer Miller had served with the agency for nine years. Norfolk County and the City of South Norfolk merged in 1963 to form the City of Chesapeake. Both police agencies were also merged and no longer exist.

I am the proud great-granddaughter of Jasper Columbus Miller. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of you. As a young girl, my grandfather Uel N. Miller... oldest son of Jasper, reflected on the memories he had as a child who was only eleven at the time his father died in the line of duty. It was a terrible loss for my grandfather. And, every time I hear of a fallen police officer, no matter where they live in the nation, my heart skips a beat knowing that there are families out there that have lost a loved one who selflessly put his life on the line to protect others. RIP great-grandfather... you will never be forgotten.
