Library Board Trustee - Mike Bock
I have been a resident of Round Lake for the last 30 years since I began my career in law enforcement. I retired from the Round Lake Police Department with over 20 years of active service, having most recently served as a sergeant for the department. I launched the D.A.R.E program in Round Lake and Round Lake Park in 1991 and taught that program for over 15 years. I also served as the SRO at the high school and am proud to have helped some great kids in our community during that time.
Since retiring I have been a sworn Marine Unit Deputy with the Lake County Sheriff's Department and worked as Chief Security Officer for Centegra Hospital system. I currently serve on the Round Lake Police Pension board as a trustee and Secretary. My wife Cindy is a police officer and together we have 4 beautiful children..... Evan, Ava, Robbie and Meghan.
I'm honored to be on the library board serving the kids and residents of the RL community once again.
