The Greene, Ohio, Sheriff’s office announced Monday that it will be officially sworn in by President Donald Trump on Monday.
The announcement comes after Trump met with the county’s mayors last week and promised that he would be “very serious” about reforming the Sheriff’s Department.
“Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of our citizens and to protect our communities and protect our families,” said Chief Deputy Chris Lattanzi, in a press release.
“It is my sincere hope that we can make the transition from one administration to the next with the confidence that the laws will be enforced, and that all are treated fairly.”
A spokesperson for Trump did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the news.
The news of Trump’s arrival comes after the sheriff’s office had been under investigation by a local grand jury for allegedly mishandling an investigation of a rape and sexual assault case involving a female officer.
The Sheriff’s department was reportedly investigated by the FBI and local prosecutors for allegedly failing to report the case to authorities in time, while also failing to investigate the rape, which the sheriff claimed occurred while the officer was working with other law enforcement officers.
After being placed on paid administrative leave, the sheriff resigned from his position in August.
Trump’s administration has not commented on the matter.
