If you’re looking for compromise, you’ve come to the wrong place.

I say what I mean, and I mean what I say.

"David was a rock star! His presentation was phenomenal. The line for his book signing stretched across the hotel’s lobby. We sold every copy of his book that we had. David was cordial and friendly with our sponsors and attendees. He signed every last book and took pictures with everyone who asked. We couldn’t have asked for anything better than what he delivered." - Freedom Summit Chicago

After nearly four decades in law enforcement, Sheriff David Clarke has found innovative ways to serve the public that gives him the freedom to reach millions of Americans with his message, unfiltered by the confines of holding an elected office. In addition to his dedication and focus as the Sheriff of a large metropolitan county, Clarke developed a passion for political commentary. He is fondly referred to as the "America's Sheriff" after being given that name by Sean Hannity because he has the natural ability to explain complicated national controversies in a way that everyday people can understand. He is the keynote speaker at countless events across the country, where the audience praises his no-nonsense way of promoting conservative values. He truly enjoys mobilizing everyday Americans to become more politically active and civically engaged.

Clarke has ramped up his massive social media activism, including regular communication with his nearly one million followers. In 2017, he became Spokesman and Senior Advisor to America First Action, dedicated to supporting the Trump-Pence Administration. Sheriff Clarke is President of America’s Sheriff LLC, President of Rise Up Wisconsin Inc, best selling author, host of Straight Talk With America's Sheriff David Clarke Podcast, and has signed with TruBlu Streaming Service to host, COPS Under Fire, coming out later in 2023. He is also one of the country's most sought after keynote speakers and thought leaders in the conservative movement.

Sheriff Clarke is a frequent guest commentator for world renowned national news programs on issues such as the reasonable use of force by law enforcement, preserving the Second Amendment, and the complexities of immigration enforcement at the local level. Just one of his interviews, where he sparred with Don Lemon of CNN, has nearly 3.4 million views on Youtube. He is also a writer for The Blue Magazine.

In his best-selling book "Cop Under Fire" Sheriff Clarke shares experiences of his childhood and how they shaped his future, as well as articulating his unwavering defense of our nation's police officers in a time when few had the courage to speak out.
