Sheriff Van Otterloo not seeking re-election

PLYMOUTH COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE

SHERIFF MIKE VAN OTTERLOO

NEWS RELEASE

 

     Plymouth County Sheriff Mike Van Otterloo has announced that he will not be seeking a ninth term as sheriff. He has been serving since 1990, when he took over from then Sheriff Dave Stock who retired with two years left on his term.

     Sheriff Van Otterloo will complete 30 plus years in the office, being the longest sitting sheriff in Plymouth County history. He stated that it will be tough to leave a career that has spanned so many years. Sheriff Van Otterloo began his law enforcement career in 1974 with the LeMars Police Department, and completed 16 ½ years of service before deciding to run for the office of sheriff.

     It will be a bitter sweet day on December 31st of 2020. I am trying not to think about it right now, the day will come soon enough (335 days). I will truly miss the people I have worked with and are currently working with.
