This week’s #throwbackthursday dates back to 2006/2007 with Sgt.

Judge James Reitz

Judge Reitz

A statement from Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. on behalf of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office:

“Today we mourn the passing of The Honorable James F. Reitz who was so much more than a judge, he was family to all of us at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office. Judge Reitz was a man who changed people’s lives through his passion for the drug court in which he always had the support and active participation of members from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office. We could go on endlessly on Judge Reitz’s accomplishments and passion for serving his community not only as Judge but as a friend to many. This is a tremendous loss for our community and he will be greatly missed by many.”

“On a personal note I am proud to say Judge Reitz was more than a Judge to me, he was a friend who I respected and admired. Rest in peace Jim. Your passing will be felt by many. May his memory be a blessing.”

Today is the 22nd anniversary of the tragic death of Michael “Satch” Neuner who died in the line of duty while battling a house fire in Brewster as a volunteer member of their Department. Current K9 Satch was named in memory of him. PC86 had been assigned to the Narcotics Unit before transferring to the City of Peekskill Police Department. His son, Michael, is currently a Deputy Sheriff with our Department and assigned to Road Patrol (ESU). We hold his family in our thoughts and prayers. #neverforget #k9satch #brewsterfd #pcso #k9unit #sheriffk9 May his memory continue to be a blessing. #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny

Putnam County Sheriff's Office Drones Assist in the Rescue of 2 Stranded Hikers


Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr., reports that on June 9, 2019, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office provided assistance during a rescue operation within the Hudson Highlands State Park. Two hikers had called for help after becoming stranded on a steep precipice, approximately one half mile south of Breakneck Ridge in the Town of Philipstown.

The Cold Spring Fire Department and the New York State Park Police located the two hikers shortly after 5:00 p.m. but the extreme terrain prevented them from affecting a rescue. A command post and staging area were established near the Cornish Estate Trailhead, forcing the closure of Route 9D. The Orange County Technical Rescue Team was summoned to the scene due to their expertise in dangerous “high-angle” rescue operations. The Team is comprised of firefighters from the City of Newburgh Fire Department, Port Jervis Fire Department, West Point Fire Department and the Sparrowbush Engine Company.

Upon arrival, the Orange County Technical Rescue Team was initially hindered by their inability to adequately evaluate the terrain. The Team’s Commanding Officer, Orange County Deputy Fire Coordinator of Special Operations Tony Kurtz, requested an aerial view of the stranded hikers in order to facilitate the “planning and retrieval mission”. His goal was to mitigate the risk to his team as they descended from above on ropes.
