Another veteran of the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office is calling it a career. Lieutenant of Detectives Cameron McGee will take the ceremonial Ramp Walk this afternoon after 31 years of service to Fond du Lac County. McGee started working in the jail in 1988, and then became a patrol deputy in 1990. McGee spent seven years on the road before being promoted to Patrol Sergeant, then moved up to Detective in 2000. McGee says as far as detective work goes, the basics of the work haven’t changed all that much in 19 years, but advances in technology have made work a lot different around other parts of the department. “The technology is just phenomenal, what we have today compared to what we had,” McGee said. “We had radios. That’s it. Of course, they still have radios today, but now we have cell phones, computers – it’s mind-boggling the changes we’ve seen.” McGee also points to advancements in DNA technology as one of the changes he’s seen in his time working as a detective.

McGee says he’s going to miss the people he works with the most after he retires. “I can sum this up real simple. I had a front row seat to the greatest show on earth, and I got to work with the finest people around. That’s it,” McGee said. He adds that Image and Traditions have always been a focus during his time with the Sheriff’s Office, starting with former sheriff’s Gary Pucker and Jim Gilmore and continuing with the recently retired Mick Fink. McGee says the department is in good hands under Sheriff Ryan Waldschmidt’s leadership. “Ryan Waldschmidt is clearly going to carry on with the image and traditions that we have, and he’s going to propel this agency forward into the future,” he said. The Ramp Walk for McGee is at 3 o’clock this afternoon at the Sheriff’s Office on Western Avenue.
