Tallahassee, FL — Right On Crime, a national criminal justice campaign of the Texas Public Policy Foundation, welcomes Christian Cochran, a seasoned law enforcement and veterans’ affairs professional, as the organization’s new Florida Director.

Cochran began his career serving as a Deputy Sheriff in the Florida panhandle and as a Reservist in the United States Army Reserve. His passion for legislation and policy was ignited during his two-year fellowship as a Wounded Warrior Fellow through the United States House of Representatives, where he dedicated his time to assisting active-duty military personnel and veterans.

Prior to joining Right On Crime, Cochran served as the Deputy Legislative Affairs Director for the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs and as Government Relations Manager for the Florida Court Clerks and Comptrollers. 

“Christian Cochran’s extensive background in law enforcement, policy, and veterans’ affairs, combined with his dedication to conservative principles, make him an invaluable addition to our organization and our efforts in Florida,” said Brett Tolman, Right On Crime Executive Director and former U.S. Attorney. “His dedication and integrity will be instrumental in advancing Right On Crime’s mission to fix broken aspects of the criminal justice system in Florida and across the nation.”

“I have a passion for creating positive change by prioritizing public safety, holding our government accountable, and upholding the Rule of Law,  and those ideals will guide the work I do for Right On Crime,” said Christian Cochran, Florida Director of Right On Crime. “I look forward to working closely with Florida lawmakers and criminal justice thought leaders as we champion conservative criminal justice initiatives in the Sunshine State.”

Cochran continues to serve his community as a Reserve Deputy Sheriff in Florida. He and his wife, Laura, are raising their daughter, Liberty Rose, in Crawfordville, Florida.
