When asked to nominate a candidate to receive the prestigious Parole Agent of the Year Award, Division of Adult Parole Operations (DAPO) Capitol District Administrator Michelle Lewis didn’t have to look far. She selected Parole Agent Clint Cooley.
This award goes to a parole agent who has made a significant contribution to the field of corrections and/or has exhibited exemplary job performance.
Agent Cooley is assigned to the Capitol District gang caseload and has assisted local law enforcement agencies in Sacramento with numerous gang arrests and weapon recovery. He is currently on the gang taskforce with the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department.
Agent Cooley also represents the Capitol District in many community events, such as Youth Shadow Day and National Night Out. Agent Cooley is a positive role model to the youth in his community and volunteers his time coaching youth football. He goes above and beyond his daily duties as a parole agent to ensure our community is safe.
California Probation, Parole and Correctional Associations’ Annual Awards Ceremony was held Sept. 5 in conjunction with the organization’s 87th annual training conference and vendor show at the Sheraton Hotel in San Diego.
