Born and raised in the City of Milwaukee, Clarke played on the championship varsity basketball team at Marquette University High School. He went on to earn a degree in Criminal Justice Management from Concordia University, Wisconsin, graduating summa cum laude. As part of his ongoing educational studies, he also graduated from the prestigious FBI National Academy and the National Executive Institute in Quantico, Virginia.

His journey of service began with the Milwaukee Police Department in 1978, where he helped protect the city for 11 years as a patrol officer on the streets. After promotion to Detective in 1989, he was assigned to the Homicide Division, investigating close to 100 homicides a year as part of a team and making arrests in over 80% of cases.

His leadership was recognized again in 1992, with a promotion to Lieutenant of Detectives, and in 1996, when he was promoted to the rank of Captain of Police, with assignments as Commander of the Crimes Against Property Division, the department’s First District (downtown), and the Intelligence Division.

In 2002, he won his first election as Sheriff with re-elections in 2006, 2010 and 2014 before vacating the position.

The line between security and privacy is as thin as it is sharp. Early in 2013, he received an M.A. in Security Studies from the Naval Postgraduate School, Center for Homeland Defense and Security, completing his thesis on domestic intelligence operations and protecting privacy and civil liberties. The co-existence of freedom and safety may be the greatest challenge any leader will face, yet the balance is attainable. As an elected officer and student of the constitution, he has devoted his entire life to finding and implementing this balance.
