Sheriff Idleburg said, “I am honored to serve as your Lake County Sheriff and am grateful to the citizens of Lake County for putting your trust in me to lead Lake County’s largest law-enforcement agency. We have an exciting future ahead of us, and I look forward to working alongside the great men and women of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office.”
