Lieutenant Matt McMillan
I began my public safety career in the mid-90s as a Correctional Officer and then went into the private sector for several years before returning to public safety as a Reserve Officer for Springdale Police Department in 2004. In Springdale, I went on to become a full-time officer to eventually the Patrol Supervisor.
I have been with Cayce Police Department for a little over 9 years and rose through the ranks from Public Safety Officer to my current position as Patrol Lieutenant over Team 2. I have had the pleasure of supervising several different divisions in the department, to include SRO’s, Training, Dispatch and Records. I enjoy leading the next generation of officers and watching them grow to become future leaders of the department. I greatly appreciate the community support our agency receives on a daily basis.
I am a graduate of the FBI Carolina Command College, Executive Management Course through the SCCJA and hold instructor certificates in several areas of law enforcement.
When not on duty for the Cayce PD, I enjoy tinkering in my shop, football, camping, and spending time with my family.

I was born and raised in a small town outside of Erie, PA and relocated to South Carolina in 2006. I began my career in Public Safety in 2002 when I received my EMT certification and over the years have worked in 2 separate 9-1-1 dispatch centers, a career fire department, and the Orangeburg Department of Public Safety. I came to the Cayce Police Department in 2014 as a Patrol Officer.
Throughout my career here at Cayce Police Department I have been a patrol officer, Patrol Corporal, Patrol Sergeant, supervised the Crime Reduction Unit, Cayce Traffic Unit, and finally now as a Patrol Lieutenant. I currently oversee the Collision Reconstruction Team as well as Patrol Team 1.
I received an Associate’s of Applied Science in Fire Science in January 2013, a Bachelor’s in Fire Service Administration in November 2015, and a Masters of Public Administration with a concentration in Criminal Justice Administration in February 2018. I live with my wife and 3 kids in a small quiet community nearby and remain an active member of my local volunteer fire department on my time off.

Lieutenant Eddie West
Lieutenant Paul Dufault
I started with the Cayce Police Department in June of 2005 and graduated from the Police Academy in November of 2005. Since then I worked on patrol and made my way up the ranks. I was fortunate to be able to become an FTO with the department within the first year out of the academy. In 2009 I became a Corporal on patrol which then lead to the rank of Sergeant in 2011. As I loved working on patrol, another opportunity arose for me in Training in 2014. I also loved working in the training division but just another position opened up and in 2017 I was able to become the Administrative Lieutenant. Looking back at my career I loved every minute and still want to continue down the best career path in law enforcement.
