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

Putnam County Traffic Safety Board Wins Gold Award in AAA's Annual Traffic Safety Program

AAA Award

The Putnam County Traffic Safety Board has won a Gold Award in AAA Northeasts Community Traffic Safety Awards Program, Director of Public and Government Affairs, John Corlett announced today. AAA has long recognized communities that make outstanding efforts to make the region’s roads safer for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.

The Safety Board was cited for its many traffic safety efforts for 2019 including conducting child car seat inspections/installations and participating in a wide variety of enforcement programs such as Click It, or Ticket, and Stop DWI. The Safety Boards focus on school bus safety was an outstanding effort to get motorists to obey the law on not passing school buses that are picking up or dropping off riders. As a result of the Boards campaign, New York State has enhanced stricter penalties for violators, gave school districts authorization to install stop arms on all buses, and the NY School Bus Stop Arm Camera Bill was passed. The Board raised awareness through social media, print, and meeting with local law enforcement. Congratulations to the Putnam County Traffic Safety Board and the many communities participating in this prestigious annual awards program.
