1975 Dodge Monaco
This week’s #throwbackthursday photo is for the car buffs. This 1975 Dodge Monaco was a “used car” when it came into the Sheriff’s Department fleet back in the mid 70’s. Back in the day, the Village of Brewster had its own police department. Not the one it has now, a different one. At one point, the department was disbanded in lieu of a contract for Sheriff’s Department coverage, 24/7. This car came with the deal. This was the old Brewster Four-Zero, it became Sheriff’s Unit #231. Have you ever seen a more ridiculous light rack? Photo ca 1977. #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #dodge #dodgemonaco1975

Recently, we teamed up with the @putnamsheriff department, providing one of our facilities for emergency response training. We’re proud to support first responders. A big thank you to those that serve for all that they do.

Thank you @nyseandg/twitter for the nice shout out and for providing your facility. It is much appreciated. #putnamsheriffny #putnamsafeputnamstrong #teamwork

K9 Char
When K9 Char is not out working in the field, he is relaxing with his friends in Communications. He has been known to answer a call or two… Happy #K9Friday long weekend everyone! #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #policedog #workingdog #sheriffK9 #accelerantdetectionk9 #policedogsofinstagram
No, this is not a photo from Woodstock, 1969. In this week’s #throwbackthursday photo, we feature Putnam County Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Investigators William Kraus (left) and Michael Martin (right). The Investigators are shown here eradicating marijuana as part of an investigation into an outdoor grow operation in the Town of Patterson in 1990. You can see in the photo that they are surrounded by marijuana plants. Speaking of the plants, are these guys short, or are these plants really tall? Bill Kraus was a member of the Narcotic Enforcement Unit for 26 years and is still serving proudly as an investigator in the B.C.I., with a total of 37 years with the Sheriff’s Department. As a matter of fact, Bill Kraus and Mike Martin were hired on the same day. Michael Martin was a member of the NEU for 10 years and an investigator for just as long. Mike Martin is still serving with the department as a Consultant. We are both fortunate and glad to still have both of these men as part of the team, as they are both an asset to the Department. Thank you for your continued service! #simplythebest #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory

My friend’s dad went to work today
Just like the day before
His family was still sleeping
When he left and shut the door
He drove down to the station
He’s a fireman, you see
My friend’s dad has a special job
He protects you and me
That morning was no different
Than many of the others
Until my friend’s dad got a phone call
They needed help to save their brothers
So they drive to New York City
And searched through the rock and rubble
My friend’s dad is a smart man
He knew our country was in trouble
My friend’s dad is a strong man
We know how hard he tried
The whole world was watching
The day our country cried
Sometimes I’m afraid to talk to him
I never take the time
But, I would like to tell my friend’s dad
I’m proud he’s a friend of mine
I won’t tell you who my friend is
You don’t need to know his name
But, if you ever meet my friend’s dad
You can thank him just the same.” .

We will be going dark until midnight tomorrow night in honor of and in memory of all lost and in support of those still living with the effects of 9/11. We remember you. #neverforget2019

Teamwork Tames Traffic-Tying Tree

It takes a team to clear a downed tree. This afternoon traffic was blocked by this tree that fell across the roadway in Garrison just south of the bridge currently being restored. Deputies Levine and Tolve were quick to respond along with Sheriff Langley to get traffic moving again on this busy Saturday afternoon. Deputy Tolve, using his ESU training, made toothpicks out of that tree in no time! Good work all! #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyNY #garrisonNY #ESUunit #slowdownmoveover
