Topeka Police Chief’s nomination for U.S. Marshal has been sent to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Chief Ron Miller is now on the official list for consideration.
Miller was nominated last month by President Barack Obama to become the U.S. Marshal for Kansas.
Miller says there are many nominations on the list, so there’s no specific timeline for review.
He said it could take four weeks or four months.
Miller has been in law enforcement for about 40 years.
Miller has spent 8 of them as Topeka Police Chief.
