Milwaukee County's acting sheriff has submitted his application to be appointed to the position. Richard Schmidt stepped into the post September 1st, when David Clarke suddenly resigned. Schmidt held a news conference Monday to talk about his first few weeks in office. He says he's already made major changes in how his department operates. He says he's found ways to cut costs. And he says he's helped improve public safety by cracking down on speeding. Over the last few weeks, he says Milwaukee County deputies have written more than 800 additional speeding tickets.
