Sheriff’s Office honors retiring sergeant with ALS

Local News

Yesterday, the Cortland County Sheriff’s Office recognized the retirement of Sgt. David Tobias, who hangs up the hat after more than 20 years served to better focus on his health.

In a post on Facebook yesterday, Sheriff Mark Helms said: “We know the road ahead is difficult, but no matter what may lie ahead, we will be with you by your side, always.”

Tobias is battling ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease, a progressive condition affecting nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that ultimately causes loss of muscle control.

The sheriff’s office held a special BBQ benefit earlier this month and another is planned for this Saturday at the Cincinnatus Fairgrounds. (click here for more)

Tobias has also served as a member of both Cincinnatus and Cortlandville fire departments.

Filling his vacancy as a new sergeant is Christopher Estep, who was promoted from his previous rank as a five-year road patrol officer.

Previously, Sgt. Estep worked in the Corrections Division.

He’s now assigned as a supervisor in the uniformed division of the Sheriff’s Office.
