About Sheriff Taylor:

Sheriff Mike Taylor took his oath of office on January 5, 2015. Taylor is a law enforcement veteran, with 32 years of experience in law enforcement, 30 with the Tacoma Washington Police Department. “Law enforcement is pretty much what I’ve done all my adult life,” he said. “It’s what I do best, and its’ a way for me to give back to a community that’s given so much to me.”

Taylor also cited an interest in developing a communities-based policing strategy, which would integrate a cooperative approach by deputies and law enforcement in resolving identified community issues.

Spring, 2015 – Two members of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office graduated from the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training Corrections Academy on March 27, 2015. Congratulations to Corrections Deputies Kassi Stoffel and Matt Morris, job well done!

On February 14, 2015, the Lake County Sheriff’s Office activated our search and rescue unit when Spencer Giesea went missing. We soon determined the need for a CORSAR activation and the request was initiated. The intense search for Mr. Giesea continued for five days. Lake County Sheriff’s Office would like to extend our gratitude for the assistance provided by the many who aided: Klamath County Sheriff’s Office, Jackson County Sheriff’s Office, Josephine County Sheriff’s Office, Coos County Sheriff’s Office, Modoc and Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Offices in California, and the many volunteers and other agencies that participated in this endeavor. The outpouring of agency cooperation was awesome.

Lastly, I would like to thank everyone for their support and assistance in my transition as the newly elected Sheriff of Lake County. The transition has gone very smoothly due to the professionalism of everyone involved.
