The Greene County resident began his career as a Correctional Officer at the maximum-security facility. During his time at WVCF Cobb has compiled valuable on-the-job experience in a variety of custody posts, from segregation to housing units.
"Sergeant Cobb has built a strong foundation for supervisory success based on his vast knowledge of the correctional environment," said Assistant Superintendent/Operations Frank Littlejohn.
Littlejohn added Cobb's "can do" attitude is impressive.
Cobb has volunteered to assist Internal Affairs with offender drug screening and is a certified handgun Trip Officer. His observational skills have paid big safety and security dividends, His most recent visit post assignment has reduced contraband from entering the facility through the north visit room.
"Officer Cobb earned a reputation for being fair, firm and consistent with our offender population," Littlejohn said. "Sergeant Cobb will instill his professionalism on his staff as we prepare our population for a successful return to society."
