ST. JOSEPH — After 40 years in law enforcement, the last 22 as sheriff, Berrien County Sheriff Paul Bailey confirmed Friday he intends to retire at the end of 2023.



While he has not formally announced his retirement, Bailey said he announced over a year ago at a meeting in Niles Township that he would not run for reelection in 2024.
