She started as part-time in Finance, and then worked full time in Internal Affairs for 3 ½ years.  In March of 1998 Charlene Miller transferred into the Crime Prevention Unit where she has served the citizens of Boise for the last 15 years. As Neighborhood Watch Director, Charlene has made countless friends within the community as she spread the word about crime prevention and neighborhood involvement.

 "Working at Boise Police Department has been a privilege, and when giving presentations in the community I’ve considered it an honor to represent BPD and serve the citizens of Boise."

 Charlene intends to spend more time with family and tackle some personal projects she has been saving.
