Gov.-elect Bill Lee has selected Williamson County Sheriff Jeff Long to serve as commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security, the Tennessean reports. It is unclear who would succeed Long, who won reelection earlier this year in the county election with no opposition. Long will replace Commissioner David Purkey, who was named safety commissioner in 2016.
