The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Wednesday that the club has hired Jeffrey Miller to serve as the team’s Vice President of Security.
“We are excited to add Jeff to our executive team in this new role, and we welcome his family to Chiefs Kingdom,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said. “Enhancing the fan experience is a constant focus for us and safety and venue security play an important part. Jeff’s wealth of experience at the league level combined with international experience on the front lines of law enforcement will undoubtedly help shape safety and security for all fans and all events at Arrowhead Stadium.”
“It is a privilege to join one of the most prestigious and storied franchises in the history of the National Football League,” Miller said. “I am honored to become part of the executive leadership team assembled by Mr. Hunt and team President Mark Donovan. I look forward to working with everyone at the Chiefs as well as the tremendous fans that provide such great support to the club. My family and I are excited to become part of the community.”
With the Chiefs, Miller will report directly to club President Mark Donovan and will be responsible for developing and managing all safety and security plans and programs for all facets of club operations, including facility security, event day safety, vendor-operated security and traffic procedures, as well as team security. He will also serve as the primary liaison between the club and the National Football League office with regards to all security matters.
Miller joins the Chiefs with decades of experience in both private security roles and public law enforcement service. In total, Miller spent eight years (2008-16) at the National Football League office in New York, serving first as Director of Strategic Security Programs (2008-11) and later as Senior Vice President and Chief Security Officer (2011-16). As Chief Security Officer at the NFL, Miller led and supervised all aspects of security for the league, including all investigative programs and services, event security (Super Bowl and International Series), game integrity programs, executive protection, fan conduct initiatives and stadium security programs.
Prior to joining the National Football League, Miller enjoyed a 24-year career in public service with the Pennsylvania State Police Department (1984-2008) across multiple bureaus, sections and divisions. A decorated law enforcement officer in the State Police, Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell nominated Miller the 18th Commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police in January of 2003. He presided over that post for nearly six years before leaving to join the NFL.
After leaving the NFL, Miller spent a year and a half as Senior Vice President for MSA Security, a New York firm specializing in security, intelligence, training and investigative services for public and private clients across several industries. He then established Jeffrey Miller Consulting, LLC in 2017 to provide client-specific security consultation focused on counterterrorism and risk mitigation measures, drawing on his years of real-world experience to devise practical solutions for complex security challenges.
He graduated from the University of South Florida with an associate degree and Elizabethtown College with a Bachelor of Professional Studies in criminal justice. He graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a Master of Public Administration degree in 2001. Miller is a two-time graduate of Federal Bureau of Investigation programs at Quantico, Virginia, and completed executive programs at Stanford University and the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.
Miller has completed extensive law enforcement training both domestically and internationally and maintains numerous professional affiliations. He has presented lectures at INTERPOL in Lyon, France, and the FBI Academy at Quantico, Virginia, and has been published multiple times in Security Magazine, a security-focused trade publication. He was named to that publication’s list of Most Influential People in Security in 2013.
Miller is married to his wife, Andrea, and the couple has two daughters.
