Cofield named Deputy Warden of Coweta County Corrections Division


From Special Reports

Tim Cofield was recently approved to serve as Deputy Warden of the Coweta County Prison by the Georgia Board of Corrections effective January 4, 2022.

Cofield, a 23-year veteran with the Corrections Division, succeeds Larry Clifton who stepped into the role of Warden in July 2021 following Bill McKenzie’s retirement.

“Making Deputy Warden is something I’m very proud of,” states Cofield. “My goal is to continue to better the institution and make a difference with our staff and offenders.”

Cofield began his career with the Corrections Division as a Corrections Officer in April 1999, working on the prison floor alongside fellow Officer/current Warden Larry Clifton. He was then promoted to Transport Corporal and then Sergeant. He later took on the role of Traffic Control Supervisor and then Lieutenant where he oversaw work on over 46 details.

During his tenure, Cofield has built great relationships and gained respect among offenders and fellow colleagues, often becoming the go-to employee to assist with inmate matters. In addition to his work, Cofield was the first individual in the Corrections Division to go through training at the Georgia Department of Corrections’ Sergeant Academy in 2007.

“I would like to congratulate Deputy Warden Cofield on his promotion,” states Clifton. “He is truly loyal and dedicated to Coweta County and our Division, and carries himself with pride and professionalism. I am very glad to have him as the assistant leader of the Corrections Division.”

Cofield lives in Carrollton with his wife, Monica, and their children. He enjoys spending time with family and working on “old school” hot rods.
