BELMONT — The Village of Belmont has named Andrew Miller as the new police chief. 

Miller, who is 23, has been a police officer for the last two years, working for the St. Clairsville and the Wintersville police departments part-time.

In addition to his new role, he said he will continue working with the Wintersville force.

Miller’s goal is to slow down traffic in the village, as well as keep larger trucks off roads they’re not supposed to be on. 

The Village of Belmont reinstated its police department last year.

Currently, four officers are on the force, and Miller is excited to begin his duties in a brand new cruiser.
