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.

Winter, 2016 – Graduations: The Lake County Sheriff’s Office would like to congratulate Taylor Albertson on his successful graduation from the Department of Public Safety Standards and Training Corrections Academy. Taylor graduated on November 11, 2016. The Sheriff’s Office welcomes Taylor back home to Lake County.
Community Meetings: The Lake County Sheriff’s Office has engaged with the citizenry of Lake County by conducting community meetings throughout the county. The meetings are designed to address specific needs of individual communities within the county. The interaction with citizens has proven to be extremely positive and productive for both community and the Sheriff’s Office.
Renovation: The Sheriff’s Office trudges along with its renovation project. The anticipated transitional move projected for November doesn’t appear to be realistic. Maybe sometime next year, 2017 might be more appropriate.
Elections: Lake County has elected District Attorney Sharon Forster. Forster comes from Klamath County and has been extremely successful in the prosecution of sexual assault cases for that county. Law enforcement in Lake County congratulates DA-Elect Sharon Forster, and we are looking forward to a professional and positive relationship for many years to come.
Congratulations to all incumbent sheriffs who were successful in their bid for re-election. You are all an asset to your profession!
