It depends on several factors. Are you a mandated peace officer through the P.O.S.T. Council? Do you have two (2) consecutive years in a full time sworn position? Did you perform duties that are similar to those performed by police officers within the Cobb County Police Department? Our background investigators will help determine if you are eligible to receive the lateral officer incentives.
There is no financial benefit for Cobb County Deputies to transfer since they are already in the Step and Grade program. If they are mandated, they will not have to go through the academy again and will be respected as veteran officers.
