(COLUMBUS, Ohio) -- Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced today that former Pickaway County Sheriff Dwight Radcliff will now serve as the Senior Law Enforcement Liaison for the Attorney General's Office.
Radcliff will travel the state to meet with law enforcement officials to discuss the programs, services, and trainings offered by the Attorney General's Bureau of Criminal Investigation (BCI) and Ohio Peace Officer Training Academy (OPOTA).

"We are pleased to have Sheriff Radcliff as part of our team," said Attorney General DeWine. "His law enforcement experience is unmatched, and he is very well respected across the state. We are confident that he will continue to advance the relationship between local law enforcement and the Attorney General's Office."
