MARSHALL, Mich. (WOOD) — After serving six years as captain of the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office, Lee Zick is retiring.

Zick was recently honored for his 27 years of service to the Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office.

Captain Zick began his career serving in the Law Enforcement Division and also worked two years with the Southwest Enforcement Team in undercover drug enforcement. He was also connected with the area DARE program, working as a DARE officer.

Captain Zick was promoted to sergeant and stayed in the Law Enforcement Division. The Corrections Division was the next chapter in Lee’s career, after he was promoted to lieutenant.

“We will miss his in-depth knowledge of people, places, and organizations,” said Chief Deputy Jim McDonagh. “Because of his hard work, we have some of the best policies and procedures in the state.”
