Captain Coby Webb

The Coroner’s Bureau provides coroner services to all 28 incorporated cities and the unincorporated areas within Riverside County. The Coroner investigates and reports on all violent, sudden or unusual deaths of persons within the County.

Captain Webb is a 23- year member of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. She began her career as a Reserve Police Officer with Palm Springs Police Department and joined the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department in 1995, where she was initially assigned to the Indio Jail.

In 1997, she was transferred to the Palm Desert Station where she worked patrol operations, bicycle patrol, and later became a Field Training Officer (FTO) and member of the Crisis Negotiations Team.

She was selected as a patrol K-9 handler in 2000 and was transferred to the Moreno Valley Station.  She was instrumental in starting the Riverside County Sheriff’s Bloodhound Unit, which is widely considered one of the best in the country. In 2003, she was transferred to the Cabazon Station with her two K-9 partners assigned to patrol operations.

Captain Webb was promoted to Sergeant in 2006. As a Sergeant, she held assignments at Indio Jail, Cabazon Station and the Ben Clark Training Center (BCTC). While at BCTC, she assisted in the department-wide leadership development curriculum which prepares and develops employees to become managers in the Department.

Captain Webb was promoted to Lieutenant in 2012 and transferred to the Palm Desert Station. During her tenure as a Lieutenant, Captain Webb managed administrative operations, investigations, and served the cities of Indian Wells and Palm Desert.

Throughout Captain Webb’s career, she has actively been involved with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Mounted Posse, which consists of volunteers who use their personal horses for duties such as patrol, search and rescue, public relations, parades, and other events.

Captain Webb possesses a Doctor of Management Degree in Organizational Leadership from University of Phoenix and a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Columbia Southern University. She resides in Cherry Valley with her 12-year old twins.
