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
Unit 212
#throwbackthursday Circa 1989. The Deputy driving Unit 212 was about to take his dinner break at Papa John’s. Stopped on Route 9 waiting for north bound traffic to pass so he could make a left turn, this patrol unit was suddenly struck and thrown forward as the vehicle that struck it passed on the right and went off the shoulder. The Deputy suffer neck and back injuries, but returned to work a day later. We have always been (and will continue to be!) #putnamstrong! #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #roadpatrol
Half Staff
The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Center lowered their flags to half-mast/half-staff in memory of those who have been lost to the Corona Virus/COVID-19, both in Putnam County, New York, and beyond. Every life is precious. May their memories be a blessing. #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #weareallinthistogether

Sheriff Langley Warns of Scam

scam

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. warns residents about a scam targeting parishioners of local places of worship.

In this scam, the “scammers,” purporting to be the Pastor/Priest or other leader of a place of worship, sends a text message to the victim, who is a parishioner of that place of worship. The scammer, via the text message, explains to the victim that they are collecting Steam Cards and/or iTunes gift cards for patients battling Coronavirus. The scammers direct the victim to purchase the cards, scratch off the numbers on the back of the card and send screenshots of the codes to the scammers via text message. In several cases the scammers specifically request that the victim’s purchase gift cards in $100 denominations. We believe this specific request is an effort to avoid detection by convenience store cashiers and clerks trained to spot signs of fraud.
We have also seen the scammers address the victim by first name and sign the text message as the pastor/priest/Msgr. of the place of worship.

Putnam County residents should be aware of this trend and variations of this scam because scammers routinely change names, organizations and the gift card brands they request. The PCSO is aware that this scam has been seen in other parts of the State and we encourage those reading this to re-share or re-post this alert to increase awareness. Lastly, we encourage anyone who is contacted by these scammers to report the incident to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) at www.ic3.gov, even if they do NOT send money. Any Putnam County residents who suffer a financial loss should report the crime to the Sheriff’s Office or their local police department for further investigation.

This past weekend, Captain Harry Tompkins went to a demonstration given by the Mahopac Falls Fire Department’s Dive Team. Two of our Department’s Deputies, McDonough & Neary, are a part of this team.

Captain Tompkins was very interested to learn about what the Dive Team does and how they operate. They are a very well trained unit that takes great pride in offering their services to the Mahopac Falls Fire District as well as the rest of Putnam County.

Take notice of the photos showing their rope system which is a communications system between the Dive member and his land partner during search and recovery missions. The interesting part is that embedded into the rope is a communication system for both parties so they are able to be in constant real-time contact.

Our dive team members do an outstanding job representing the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and they received lots of good feedback from the ranking members of the Fire Department. We could not be more proud!
