Door County Sheriff Terry Vogel has announced that he will not seek a fourth term. When he leaves the sheriff’s office, Vogel will have completed 39 years in law enforcement, including 12 years as sheriff. In a statement issued Monday, Vogel said it has been an honor and a privilege to be sheriff of Door County and he takes pride in the fact that the citizens put their trust in his leadership. He will continue as sheriff for the next year and will assist in the transition of his successor. Vogel said a great deal has been accomplished during his tenure including opening of a new justice center facility, technology upgrades and the continued belief that the community and police must work together to provide a quality of life that makes the county a special place to live and vacation. He paid tribute to the officers he has worked with for close to 40 years, officers who truly care about the safety of citizens. He noted that time and again they have stepped up when it came to protecting residents and visitors. Vogel said there’s a reason why Door County is one of the safest counties in the state of Wisconsin. It’s citizens continue to stand up against crime in partnership with law enforcement. Vogel said he looks forward to spending time with his family and moving on to the next chapter in his life.
