Bill Miller, an entrepreneur who owns two local businesses, is exceptionally active in the community of several different levels, as well as recently becoming a certified Auxiliary Police Officer for the Marco Island Police Department.  Bill donates approximately one hundred hours a month to the Police Department, in various roles including: Police Officer, administrative support, trainer, and mentor. Recently Bill went well above and beyond the normal call of duty for a volunteer with the Agency on two specific and very special projects. After a recent training exercise, Bill recognized an opportunity to provide some specialized equipment to the Department.  Bill and his wife, Catherine donated several hundred dollars worth of specialized tools, tools that could aid in the rapid response to emergent situations. Most recently, Bill spearheaded a donation drive at his firm, Miller, Cook & Associates, which dovetail with the Marco Island Police Department’s Backpack and school supplies donation program which resulted in the donation of dozens of backpacks to the Collier County Domestic Violence Shelter.  Miller, Cook &Associates’ donation, through Bill, provided a substantial number of gift-cards which were donated to the shelter to facilitate additional backpack purchases. While we are always exceptionally proud of the nearly twenty-some volunteer Officers and civilians who provide the community with a tremendous resource on a daily basis,we wanted to take a moment and recognize Bill, his wife Catherine, and the employees of Miller, Cook & Associates for going above the call of duty.
