Hello #flashbackfriday! Circa 1980’s
Sergeant Anthony Edwards preparing to saddle his 1979 Plymouth Volare Pursuit package patrol unit. Sergeant Edwards served the people of Putnam County with pride and dedication and brought not only the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department to the forefront of technology but changed police reporting national by implementing the use of computers during their infancy for police reports. Anthony Edwards would to this day be a tremendous asset not only to the Sheriff’s Department but to our community due to his passion and knowledge in the communications and reporting systems of emergency services. #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #putnamhistoryny #plymouthvolare #policecar #vintagecar

Carmel Man Arrested for Felony DWI


On May 8, 2021, at approximately midnight, while on patrol in the Town of Carmel, Deputy Robert Weinberg observed a 1999 Toyota 4 Runner commit a traffic infraction on RT 6 in the area of RT6N. The driver pulled into the gas station at 621 RT 6 and Deputy Weinberg initiated a traffic stop. The driver was identified as Salomon O. Aguirre, of Carmel. While interviewing Aguirre, Deputy Weinberg detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Aguirre’s breath. After an investigation, the Deputy determined Aguirre was driving while intoxicated and placed him under arrest without incident.

A criminal history search showed Aguirre to have a prior conviction for DWI on January 29, 2016 in the Town of Cortland Justice Court. Aguirre was charged with Driving While Intoxicated with a previous conviction within 10 years and Driving While Intoxicated with a BAC of .08 of 1% or more. Both charges were felonies due to Aguirre’s previous conviction.

Aguirre was given an appearance ticket and released on his own recognizance. Aguirre is due back in the Town of Carmel Justice Court on May 18, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. in front of the honorable Judge Jacobellis.

The Police Unity Tour

The Police Unity Tour

Police Unity
Police Unity

Two of our Department members, Sergeants Cihanek and Kennedy, are participating in the Putnam / Dutchess leg of the 2021 Police Unity Ride.

A little “pedigree” on this event:

OUR MISSION The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty. The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum.

OUR HISTORY In May 1997 the Police Unity Tour was organized with the hope of bringing public awareness of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices. We started in 1997 with 18 riders on a four-day fund-raising bicycle ride from Florham Park, NJ to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C., which raised $18,000.00.

This past May we were not able to ride to Washington, D.C. because of COVID-19. However, our 2600 members nationwide continued our efforts to support the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. We are proud to announce that our donation to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund for 2020 was 2 million dollars, bringing our total donations, over 24 years, to 30 million dollars.

The Police Unity Tour is the official sponsor of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund’s “Officer of the Month Program”. Officers of the Month are honored at a special awards dinner each May in Washington, D.C. during National Police Week, and they are featured in the Memorial Fund’s annual calendar. The Police Unity Tour is also proud to sponsor the NLEOMF’s “Recently Fallen Alerts”.

With the completion of the National Law Enforcement Officers Museum it was announced that in addition to the Hall of Remembrance, the Entry Pavilion to the Museum would be named in honor of the Police Unity Tour. This recognition will enhance the awareness and understanding of the Police Unity Tour with every visitor that enters the Museum.

May 9-15, 2021 is National Police Week

Police Week

May 9-15, 2021 is National Police Week. What is National Police Week?

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

Today, Sheriff Langley held a BBQ for the members of the Department. In appreciation for all the hard work they do each and every day it is only fitting to do something special for them. He is proud of each and every member and the work that they do for the community keeping Putnam safe. We are grateful for their service and for the service of police agencies everywhere celebrating this week.

SPCA Arrests 19-Year-Old Philipstown Resident for Animal Abuse


Great teamwork by everyone. #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #multiagencycooperation
Repost courtesy of @putnamcountyspca_ny

The Putnam County SPCA announces the arrest of Caleb Shuk, a 19-year-old resident of the Town of Philipstown on May 4th, 2021. In April, the Putnam County SPCA was contacted by an officer of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Police in regard to a Snapchat video that was forwarded to that agency, of an adult male killing a bat resting against a rock wall in the Sunken Mines Caves area of Putnam Valley. The suspect took a large rock, with no justifiable reason, appeared to crushed the bat multiple times causing it extreme pain and ultimately its death – all while yelling expletives about coronavirus and laughing. The Department of Environmental Conservation Police and Putnam County SPCA Law Enforcement Division were able to locate the individual, Caleb Shuk, and interviewed him at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department. SPCA officers charged Mr. Shuk with allegedly committing one count of animal cruelty, a class A misdemeanor. Mr. Shuk will be arraigned in Putnam Valley Justice Court on the SPCA charge and additional NYS DEC Police charges on May 13th.

The Putnam County SPCA would like to thank the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Police, the Village of Cold Spring Police Department, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department, and the Putnam County Probation Department for their help.
