Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke will be joining the Department of Homeland Security.
“I will be leaving the position of sheriff to accept an appointment as assistant secretary in the Department of Homeland Security,” Clarke said during an interview on WISN radio Wednesday.
According to WISN-TV, Clarke said he told Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker a couple of months ago that he might be leaving but has not spoken to him this week.
“I’m both honored and humbled to be appointed to this position by Secretary (John) Kelly, working for the Trump administration. It will be in specifically, the office of partnership and programs.”
Clarke says he expects to begin working at DHS in June.
