CRIME CRACKDOWN: Sheriff Clarke Accepts Job at Homeland Security

The popular law and order sheriff out of Wisconsin, Sherriff David Clarke, is moving into a new role in the Department of Homeland Security as the Trump administration continues to crack down on violence and crime throughout the U.S.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported:

Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. will leave the office next month to accept a federal appointment as an Assistant Secretary in the Department of Homeland Security.

He will work in the department’s Office of Partnership and Engagement as a liaison with state, local and tribal law enforcement and governments.

“I’m looking forward to joining that team,” Clarke said Thursday afternoon on the Vicki McKenna talk show on 1130 WISN Radio.

Clarke said one of his responsibilities would be to “take complaints of shortcomings in the Department of Homeland Security.”

“They feel like they’re being ignored,” Clarke said of his counterparts in local law enforcement.
