PLACER COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE: We are devastated by the unexpected passing of Sgt. Michael Lyke.
Sgt. Lyke was an exceptional member of the Placer County Sheriff’s Office family. He began his career with PCSO in 1996, and worked numerous assignments including corrections, patrol and investigations. Sgt. Lyke also held assignments at the Tahoe substation, as a dive team member and as a weaponless defense instructor. His most current assignment was running the civil division at the Sheriff’s Office.
In August of 2012, Sgt. Lyke was named Employee of the Month for his willingness to solve any problem, his professionalism and his “can do” attitude. He will be dearly missed, our prayers and hearts are with the Lyke family at this time.
