PEWAUKEE - After more than 13 years working in the criminal justice program at Waukesha County Technical College, Brian Dorow has taken a job in Washington, D.C, but it’s still related to law enforcement.

Greg West, dean for the WCTC School of Protective and Human Services, said Friday that Dorow’s last day at the school was Feb. 28 and he began his new position as the assistant secretary for state and local law enforcement under the Department of Homeland Security’s office for state and local law enforcement on Monday. It is an appointed position.

At WCTC, Dorow was the associate dean of criminal justice, homeland security and counter-terrorism. His earlier career included time as a Waukesha Police officer.

“For what it’s worth, I think it’s a role very wellsuited to his skillset,” West said. “Brian is great at collaborating, at forming partnerships and building bridges.”

He added that he believes the position Dorow has now will make him responsible for maintaining relationships between the federal government and local law enforcement agencies.

West, who was Dorow’s supervisor, was hired about the same time as Dorow in August 2004 at WCTC.

Dorow helped create the WCTC’s interactive street scene, as well as its gun range, which is open to the public and law enforcement agencies.

As a private citizen, Dorow conducted security for President Donald Trump when he visited the area. He also attended the president’s inauguration.

Once he took the position in D.C., Dorow was unable to comment on his new role.
