SHEBOYGAN — The Sheriff of Sheboygan County, Todd Priebe, has announced his retirement Thursday morning.

The news of Priebe’s retirement is not a surprise. In the last year, Priebe has confirmed he would not be running for re-election in 2018. Priebe made the news public Thursday morning on WHBL’s Sheboygan’s Morning News radio program.

Priebe was planning to retire at the end of his term but is instead leaving a year early for a career in the private sector. Governor Scott Walker will be tasked with appointing Priebe’s replacement for the reminder for Priebe’s term.
