Birgam Retires, Cory Promoted At Gila County Sheriff's Office


The Gila County Sheriff's Office is seeing some personnel changes.

Trudy Cory is the new administrative manager, moving into a post held by Robert Birgam, who retired at the end of March.

Cory has worked for the GCSO for seven years, serving as the communications supervisor for the Payson office for the past three years.

As part of her new position, Cory will schedule deputy training, record when the training is completed and perform other miscellaneous duties.

She will also continue with many of the duties associated with the communications supervisor post. Cory will move ahead with a project with which she has been involved for an extended period: addressing for the 911 system.

An outside contractor has completed the global positioning system part of the project for most of northern Gila County. Once the addressing is done, the information will be entered into the 911 data system so that the addresses will be displayed with the 911 call information.

In addition to her work with the sheriff's department, Cory has taught liability classes for the rural counties of Arizona the last three years.

Birgam has been with the sheriff's department for 22 years. He has served as a patrol officer, sergeant and administrative manager.

Birgam and his wife, Nancy, who retired the same day he did, plan to travel.
