Congratulations to Corporal Michael Baker on his retirement from the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. According to LCSO, Michael had worked for LCSO for 30 years.

Michael began his career with the Sheriff’s Office in 1993 as a Detention Deputy. Michael’s experience and motivation earned him the position of Field Training Officer.

He was a member of the Honor Guard during most of his career. In 2002, he transferred to the Court Services Bureau as Deputy Sheriff. Michael then worked for several different judges during his career.

Michael would wind down his career by working for Judge Cary Rada as his Court Deputy. Many in our community have come to know Michael over the years, and we are thankful for his service to our great community.

“Michael has had a very distinguished career and was a great asset to the Sheriff’s Office and the community. Thank you, Michael, enjoy your retirement,” said Lake County Sheriff’s Office in a Facebook post.

Congratulations on the service, Corporal Baker! We wish you the best of luck in your retirement.
