Officer promoted to sergeant with the Avon police
AVON — The Avon Police Department recently promoted officer Coby Cosper to the rank of sergeant. The promotion came through after Cosper completed a competitive internal selection process involving a review of credentials, training and experience, written assessment, role play and an interview panel.
Cosper is a four-year Avon police officer, serving as a patrol officer and detective prior to the promotion. With his new responsibilities, Cosper is being assigned to a patrol shift in Avon where he will supervise six police officers and work toward achieving the department’s mission to “make a difference.”
“We are very proud of Sergeant Cosper and know he will do an excellent job serving our community in his new role,” Avon Police Chief Robert Ticer said.
Prior to his employment with the Avon Police Department, Cosper served in the U.S. Navy for 20 years, retiring at the rank of senior chief petty officer. Cosper has a master’s degree in homeland security and has extensive experience in incident command and large scale event planning.
