Sgt. Jason Cobb awarded Medal of Valor

  • December 27, 2020

On Thursday, December 17, 2020 Sgt. Jason Cobb was presented with a Medal of Valor for his actions on the night of July 9, 2020 in Reno.
During that event, Sgt. Cobb, along with multiple Springtown and Reno Police officers, as well as deputies from the Parker County Sheriff’s Office, responded to a domestic disturbance call. Upon their arrival, the officers were met with gunfire. During the incident three officers were shot and two were wounded.

Despite the risk to his personal safety, Sgt. Cobb and the other officers at the scene held the line to keep innocent civilians in the area safe from harm.

The Medal of Valor is presented to officers who “a member who, intelligently and in the line of police duty, performs an act of gallantry and valor above and beyond the call of duty, at imminent personal hazard to life and with knowledge of the risk.”

Sgt. Cobb was presented the medal by Reno Chief of Police Tony Simmons. He was the third Springtown Police Department officer to be awarded the Medal of Valor for their actions at the July 9, 2020 incident. Ofc. Michael Satterfield and Ofc. Clint Kern were previously awarded the medal.

Sgt. Cobb displays the Medal of Valor he received for his actions.

 

RPD Lt. Brian Furr, SPD Ofc. Clint Kern, SPD Sgt. Jason Cobb, SPD Interim Chief of Police Cres Salazar, and RPD Chief of Police Tony Simmons.
