Even in retirement, Mike Green of Baileys Harbor lives the motto of his career as a police officer: protect and serve. The veteran of the Northbrook, Illinois Police Department has wasted little time relaxing since retiring to his summer home 10-years ago. He brought his experience working with AARP to help senior citizens learn not to be victimized.
Green is also putting his amateur radio skills to use. He works with area law enforcement agencies and Door County Medical Center to ensure they have reliable back up communications during natural and other disasters.
By his own admission, Mike Green says he’s too busy to retire and isn’t about to let a lifetime of serving and protecting go to waste.
