Ex-sheriff named liaison for Ohio attorney general

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A former central Ohio sheriff labeled the nation’s longest-serving sheriff is the state attorney general’s new liaison with Ohio’s local law enforcement officials.

Attorney General Mike DeWine said Tuesday that former Pickaway County Sheriff Dwight Radcliff is now his office’s senior law enforcement liaison.

Radcliff will travel across Ohio to meet with law enforcement officials and discuss programs, services and training offered by the attorney general’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy.

Radcliff retired in 2012 after serving as Pickaway County’s sheriff since 1965. The Alexandria, Va.-based National Sheriffs’ Association says he was the longest-serving sheriff in the United States when he retired.

DeWine says in a statement that Radcliff’s law enforcement experience is unmatched and he is respected across the state.
