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

On May 10, 2021, at approximately 10:44 p.m. Deputy Kevin Osika responded to the area of Miller Road, in the Town of Putnam Valley, on the report of a welfare check/suspicious vehicle. Upon arriving on the scene, Deputy Osika observed a male, later identified as 38-year-old Thomas Fitzgerald, in the driver’s seat of a vehicle parked on Miller Road. Mr. Fitzgerald appeared to be “passed out”. Deputy Osika noted that the vehicle had its lights off, but the engine was running, and the vehicle was blocking the lane of travel.

Deputy Osika was able to wake Mr. Fitzgerald up and after a brief investigation learned that Mr. Fitzgerald had an outstanding warrant out of the City of Peekskill. A further investigation revealed that Fitzgerald was in possession of three glassines of alleged heroin. He was taken into custody, booked, processed, and released with an appearance ticket for Putnam Valley Court on May 25, 2021. Mr. Fitzgerald, of Cortlandt Manor, was charged with Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance in the 7th Degree, a Misdemeanor, and three traffic violations (Operating a Motor Vehicle without Insurance, Driving Without a License and Stopping/Standing on a Highway.)

Deputy Weinberg initiated a traffic stop and made contact with the driver, 46-year-old Ledell L. Ellis. A subsequent investigation determined that Mr. Ellis was driving with a revoked license and driving while intoxicated with a 4-year-old and a 5-year-old in the back seat. Both children were also not in safety restraints. Deputy Weinberg placed Mr. Ellis under arrest without incident and turned the children over to the care of their aunt. Ellis’ license was revoked for a previous charge of Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated with a child in the car.

Deputy Weinberg brought Ellis back to the correctional facility for processing. He was charged with Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated (Felony) - Child in Vehicle, Driving While Intoxicated (Felony, previous conviction in 10yrs), Driving While Intoxicated Operate MV .08 Of 1% Or More Alcohol (Felony, Prior Conviction w/in 10 Yrs.), Aggravated Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle 1st Degree (Felony), 2 counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Mr. Ellis, of Peekskill, was given an appearance ticket and released on his own recognizance. He is due back in the Town of Putnam Valley Justice Court later in the month in front of the honorable Judge Van Ross.

On May 21, 2021, at approximately 12:41 a.m., while traveling eastbound on RT 6 in the Town of Southeast, Deputy Robert Weinberg observed a 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer commit multiple traffic infractions on RT 6 in the area of the I-684 northbound on-ramp. Deputy Weinberg initiated a traffic stop on RT22 and made contact with the driver, 32-year-old William A. Madrid-Vasquez. After a subsequent investigation, Deputy Weinberg determined that Mr. Madrid-Vasquez was driving while intoxicated and placed him under arrest without incident.

Deputy Weinberg brought Mr. Madrid-Vasquez back to the correctional facility for processing and charged him with Driving While Intoxicated, (Misdemeanor) Driving While Intoxicated Operate MV .08 Of 1% Or More Alcohol (Misdemeanor).

Carmel Man Arrested for Felony DWI

DWI

On May 8, 2021, at approximately midnight, while on patrol in the Town of Carmel, Deputy Robert Weinberg observed a 1999 Toyota 4 Runner commit a traffic infraction on RT 6 in the area of RT6N. The driver pulled into the gas station at 621 RT 6 and Deputy Weinberg initiated a traffic stop. The driver was identified as Salomon O. Aguirre, of Carmel. While interviewing Aguirre, Deputy Weinberg detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Aguirre’s breath. After an investigation, the Deputy determined Aguirre was driving while intoxicated and placed him under arrest without incident.

A criminal history search showed Aguirre to have a prior conviction for DWI on January 29, 2016 in the Town of Cortland Justice Court. Aguirre was charged with Driving While Intoxicated with a previous conviction within 10 years and Driving While Intoxicated with a BAC of .08 of 1% or more. Both charges were felonies due to Aguirre’s previous conviction.

Aguirre was given an appearance ticket and released on his own recognizance. Aguirre is due back in the Town of Carmel Justice Court on May 18, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. in front of the honorable Judge Jacobellis.

The Police Unity Tour

The Police Unity Tour

Police Unity
Police Unity

Two of our Department members, Sergeants Cihanek and Kennedy, are participating in the Putnam / Dutchess leg of the 2021 Police Unity Ride.

A little “pedigree” on this event:

OUR MISSION The primary purpose of the Police Unity Tour is to raise awareness of Law Enforcement Officers who have died in the line of duty. The secondary purpose is to raise funds for the National Law Enforcement Officer’s Memorial and Museum.

OUR HISTORY In May 1997 the Police Unity Tour was organized with the hope of bringing public awareness of law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty and to honor their sacrifices. We started in 1997 with 18 riders on a four-day fund-raising bicycle ride from Florham Park, NJ to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in Washington D.C., which raised $18,000.00.

This past May we were not able to ride to Washington, D.C. because of COVID-19. However, our 2600 members nationwide continued our efforts to support the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. We are proud to announce that our donation to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund for 2020 was 2 million dollars, bringing our total donations, over 24 years, to 30 million dollars.

The Police Unity Tour is the official sponsor of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund’s “Officer of the Month Program”. Officers of the Month are honored at a special awards dinner each May in Washington, D.C. during National Police Week, and they are featured in the Memorial Fund’s annual calendar. The Police Unity Tour is also proud to sponsor the NLEOMF’s “Recently Fallen Alerts”.

With the completion of the National Law Enforcement Officers Museum it was announced that in addition to the Hall of Remembrance, the Entry Pavilion to the Museum would be named in honor of the Police Unity Tour. This recognition will enhance the awareness and understanding of the Police Unity Tour with every visitor that enters the Museum.

May 9-15, 2021 is National Police Week

May 9-15, 2021 is National Police Week. What is National Police Week?

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15 as National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15 falls, as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week pays special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

Today, Sheriff Langley held a BBQ for the members of the Department. In appreciation for all the hard work they do each and every day it is only fitting to do something special for them. He is proud of each and every member and the work that they do for the community keeping Putnam safe. We are grateful for their service and for the service of police agencies everywhere celebrating this week.
