Officer Bobbitt grew up in this area and has been a lifelong residence of the Galax/Carroll County Area. He graduated from Carroll County High School. After high school Officer Bobbitt went to work with his Dad and Grand Dad on the farm while also working with the Carroll County School System in the Maintenance Department. During this time, Bobbitt was offered a job with the Hillsville Police Department. He worked with the Hillsville Police Department for 2 years then took a job with the Carroll County Sheriff's Office.  Twenty-eight years later he retired from this position. Shortly thereafter, Bobbitt went back to work with the Pulaski County Sheriff's office for 1 year then took his current job with the Galax Police Department as the School Recourse Officer for Galax Elementary School.

Over 30+ years of service Officer Bobbitt has been involved in many aspects of law enforcement from patrol duties to undercover operations. He has been on state and federal taskforces.  These taskforces involved Bobbitt and his fellow officers in many operations, including drug and gun violations, and fugitive recovery. He has been cross sworn on both the state and federal level. Worked with the Virginia State Police, The DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency),ATF (Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms) and The U.S. Marshalls Office.

Bobbitt says, "All of my Law Enforcement career has been very pleasant and rewarding but nothing has compared to my current position as a School Resource Officer. Of all of my career this job has been the most REWARDING. I love my job and the opportunity that has been given to me as a School Resource Officer.

I am a Graduate of The New River Regional Police Academy. I have several specialty training certifications both state and federal.
