Lauder retiring from Door County Sheriff's Office

A 23-year law enforcement career at the Door County Sheriff’s Department will be coming to a close this month for Lt. Bob Lauder.  Lauder started his career in the department working parades as a non-sworn reserve while working his way through college.  The 54-year old Door County native graduated from Sturgeon Bay High School and from NWTC with a degree in police science.  During his career, Lt. Lauder has been a SWAT commander in which he was able to get paramedics on the team for the first time.  He appreciated the opportunity to work in partnership with the Sturgeon Bay Police Department and former Police Chief Arleigh Porter, who also retired earlier this year.  His career was impacted by many associates and family members.



In retirement, Lauder plans on starting a lawn maintenance business and continuing volunteering his time for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle campaign.  Lauder’s last day with the Door County Sheriff’s Department will be on December 23.  You can listen to the conversation with Lt. Lauder on the podcast page.
