Man Arrested for Publicly Displaying Offensive Sexual Material Outside the County Courthouse

Putnam County Sheriff, Robert L. Langley Jr., reports that on 10/15/19 at approximately 9:46 a.m., Deputy Matthew Boscia was dispatched to the Putnam County Court House, located at 20 County Center in the Town of Carmel, for a report of a billboard, on top of a vehicle, which was displaying pictures of a topless woman. Upon his arrival, Deputy Boscia did observe a white Dodge SUV, with a billboard attached to it, displaying, among other things, three large photos of a woman with no shirt, no bra, and both breasts entirely exposed. The vehicle’s owner, 66 year old Douglas D. Demasi, of Hopewell Junction, who admitted putting the billboard up, arrived at the court house and was taken into custody without incident. He was charged with one count of Public Display of Offensive Sexual Material, a class “A” misdemeanor.

Mr. Demasi was processed at the Sheriff’s Office and released on his own recognizance with an appearance ticket ordering him to appear in the Town of Carmel Court at a later date.

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office wishes to express their condolences to the family and friends of Thomas G. DeMarchi. May he Rest In Peace and May his memory be a blessing. (Obituary courtesy of Cargain Funeral Home.)
#community #carmelNY #mahopacNY

“Thomas G. DeMarchi entered eternal rest in the loving arms of Rosary Hill Home in Hawthorne, NY on the evening of Sunday, October 13th. Tom was born in Brooklyn on July 5, 1952. He moved to Mahopac, NY in 1969 where he would soon graduate from Mahopac High School. He attended a few years of college at Lowell Technical Institute in Massachusetts where he learned how to cook under their great chefs by working in the kitchen. He left college in 1972 to pursue a career as a police officer for the town of Carmel. Those twenty-three years spent serving and protecting citizens were his most prideful, but that wasn’t all he did. He also served as a Carmel Fire Department Commissioner for a few years and on the Carmel Ambulance Corporation. He was a member of the Carmel Police Benevolent Association, the Fraternal Order of Police - Stephen Driscoll Lodge, and the Knights of Columbus.

Brewster Fire Department Open House

Great turnout today @brewster_fire_department_ny for their annual open house. The @pcsocadets were on hand to assist and publicize their upcoming cadet program session (see their profile for more information) and Senior Investigator Alfano and Danielle signed up more than twenty new children into the Operation Safe Child program. All in all a perfect fall day for Putnam families to enjoy this special event provided by the BFD and the many participating vendors and agencies. Thank you! #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #brewsterNY #community #volunteer #firefighter #operationsafechild

The Department takes great pride in recognizing the heroism of its members.

Thank you! #putnamcountyNY #putnamsafeputnamstrong #thethinblueline


Michael J. Ball

For this week’s #throwbackthursday photo, we feature Deputy Sheriff Michael J. Ball. Michael Ball was probably one of the most proud and professional members of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department. Having previously served on the Village of Cold Spring Police Department, like so many of us, Mike became a deputy sheriff and then investigator. Mike loved the job, the reputation of the Department and it showed. Whether it be in his personal appearance or the meticulous way he approached his duties, Mike always gave 100%. From crime scene to courtroom, Mike performed his duties the same way, consistently and professionally every time. With the help of those who came before him, Mike helped bring the Identification Bureau to a new level. Investigator Ball enjoyed a reputation in the law enforcement community as a highly trained and experienced professional, his integrity was and is without question. Mike worked numerous high profile investigations and his expertise was called upon once again during the recovery efforts at Ground Zero immediately following the terrorist attacks on America. Investigator Ball is unquestionably one of the many law enforcement professionals that have passed through our doors, that have helped us get to where we are today. In the black and white photo, Dep. Ball chats with Putnam County Legislator Mike Semo, following a ride-a-long. Thank you for your service and your contribution. #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY
