Many law enforcement officers began their careers at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, before moving on to other federal, state or local agencies. In this week’s #tbt, we feature one such officer, Russell C. Evans. Russ Evans served as a Putnam County Deputy Sheriff from 1969 through 1974, before joining the Town of Carmel Police Department. While in Carmel, Evans rose through the ranks from patrolman to sergeant, then lieutenant and eventually to being their 7th Chief in 1987, where he served with distinction until his retirement in 2000. Mr. Evans is also a graduate of the 157th Session of the prestigious, FBI National Academy. Thank you for your service, Chief. #pcso #putnamcountyny

Honoring Veterans on Purple Heart Day

Today we remember and honor every Purple Heart recipient but, in particular, our very own Charlie Moore. In the first photo, he is receiving an award from the Putnam County Marine Corps League (photo courtesy of). The second photo, taken January 26, 1972, is in tribute to his days at the #PCSO when he worked at the Youth Aid Bureau. He is demonstrating “Stanley the Talking Bicycle.” Stanley was transported from one school to another and used to promote bicycle safety, way before helmets for bicyclist were even thought of. Prior to joining the Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Moore served his Country with distinction in the United States Marine Corps, in Viet Nam, where he earned the Purple Heart. Thank you Deputy Moore for all your service and to all who served and gave the ultimate sacrifice. We salute and remember you. #purpleheart #thankaveteran

Sheriff's Department Warns Citizens About NYSEG Phone Scam

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. advises that citizens should be aware of an NYSEG “Green Dot Money Paks” Phone Scam. Over the past few years, during the summer months, local businesses in Putnam County have received phone calls from phony individuals who claim to be representatives from New York State Electric and Gas. The scammer informs the businesses that they are behind in their electricity bill. The scammer then warns the business that to avoid having their electric service from being shut off, they have to make payment immediately.
