Winter Haven Police Department:
Congratulations Detective Cobb!
On May 2, the Winter Haven Optimist Club presented Detective Brittany Cobb with its 2022 Respect for Law award.
Detective Cobb was nominated for the award because of her dedicated work with the Special Olympic 5K race and serving as the program leader of the Department’s Explorer Post program. Her position as program leader for the Explorer Program requires many volunteer hours to help mentor and educate the program participants. She schedules regular meetings and training sessions for the Explorers and dedicates time to teach these individuals about law enforcement but more importantly to provide guidance on career paths for youth of our community.
Detective Cobb herself was an Explorer for several years prior to being hired by the Police Department in 2017. Pictured with Detective Cobb is Fred DeLoach, WH Optimist Club Respect for Law Chairperson (Retired WHPD Major) and Club President Kathie Youtsler.
