Lucas, a Major League Baseball security official, won the November 6, 2018 election as sheriff after former Sheriff David Clarke resigned in August 2017.

Lucas, a 25-year veteran of the Milwaukee Police Department, retired as a captain in 2002 from the Milwaukee Police Department and went to work for Major League Baseball as chief liaison of security and investigations.
