“I will be leaving the position of sheriff to accept an appointment as assistant secretary of the Department of Homeland Security. I’m both honored and humbled to be appointed to this position by Secretary Kelly — working for the Trump administration. It will be in, specifically, the Office of Partnership and Programs, with several branches within there,” Clarke told McKenna. “I’ll be a liaison with state and local governments and with the private sector and one that’s really near and dear to me — liaison with the state, local and tribal law enforcement.”

Clarke told McKenna he’ll be leaving for D.C. in June.
