The Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office Maintenance Division is a crew of four men who are under the leadership of Maintenance Director Robert “Pete” Cochran. The Maintenance Division is responsible for a wide range of tasks including making sure the fleet of vehicles are always operating properly.
The division maintains the entire building which includes the administrative offices, Emergency Operations Center, Dispatch and the jail. The jail operations include locks, plumbing and electrical.
Other services provided by the division include welding, carpentry, painting, air conditioning and lighting. The maintenance division prides itself on being able to create answers to questions to save the agency money by performing many tasks “in house” rather than spending much more money on a vendor.
