Londoner promoted to probation and parole post


Special to The Times-Tribune

A London man has been promoted to assistant supervisor in Probation and Parole District 10, an area that covers seven counties including Knox and Laurel, according to an announcement from Division of Probation and Parole Director Tim Carman.

Barry Cochrane’s promotion is effective Monday.

District 10 has field offices in Manchester, Harlan and Pineville. The other counties in the district are Bell, Clay, Harlan, Jackson and Leslie.

“Barry has always gone above and beyond in his job. He has demonstrated by his hard work and dedication that this is more than a job to him,” said Carman. “I am glad to have this opportunity to promote a person with the skill sets that Barry possesses. He will continue to be a valuable asset to District 10 and to the Department of Corrections.”

Cochrane began his career with the Department of Corrections in November 2000 as a correctional officer at Luther Luckett Correctional Complex in LaGrange. In August 2004 he transferred to the Division of Probation & Parole as an officer in the Williamsburg office. In May 2005, he transferred to the London office where he stayed until October 2006 when he left the department to take a position as a correctional officer at the Federal Correctional Institution in Manchester. While working for the Bureau of Prisons, he graduated with honors from the Correctional Officers Basic Academy at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Ga. Cochrane returned to the Division of Probation and Parole as an officer in the London office in July 2007.

Cochrane is a 2000 graduate of Eastern Kentucky University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in police administration. He is also the recipient of the 2006 District 10 Achievement Award.

Cochrane currently resides in London with his wife, Kristie, and their two sons, Matthew and Logan.
