Sheriff’s Department Launches New Marine-Patrol Vessel

New Boat

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. announces the launching of a new marine patrol vessel, which will be utilized to patrol Lake Mahopac. The new vessel, a 2012 (twenty-one foot) Boston Whaler, replaces a 1998 (eighteen foot) Boston Whaler. In addition to a standard marine patrol vessel package, the new vessel comes equipped with Radar and a Forward Looking Infrared Camera. The newly equipped vessel will increase the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department’s capabilities for searching in the dark and handling emergencies on Lake Mahopac. The vessel was provided to the Sheriff’s Department by the New York State Department of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, at no cost to Putnam County. The Sheriff’s Department also participates in a New York State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation reimbursement program, which provides funding for all of the Sheriff’s Department’s Marine Patrol operations.

Deputy for a Day

Sheriff Langley with Erie County brothers Matthew and Andrew who is battling brain cancer. The Sheriff presented both with the lapel pins and challenge coins. The Erie County Sheriff’s Department arranged a staged drug bust and called Andrew up asking for him to come in and help them. They did the whole thing as an emergency response take down and cuffed up the “bad guy.” Andrew had been sworn in by Erie County Sheriff Howard as a deputy for the day. Everyone wishes Andrew and his family all the best! #nyssa2018

Carmel PBA Scam Alert

Scam Alert

The Carmel Police has received a complaint of a scam in which the subject(s) are “spoofing” the telephone number of the “Town of Carmel” or “Town of Carmel Police”.

The victim reported that a male caller with a Middle Eastern accent was trying to gather information about cell phone software from the victim and appeared to be calling from a Town of Carmel Official Phone Line. We believe if the scam continued, the scammer would have attempted to gain remote access into the victims phone or computer and extort money from the victim once the device takeover took place. This is a common scam and thankfully our victim recognized the scam right away and did not lose any money or give any personal information. Please warn elderly relatives of potential phone scams. Do not give any information out and when in doubt hang up and call the police directly.

  • Brewster, NY- When the temperatures soar, health problems can arise. Staying cool and hydrated is the key to staying healthy and safe in a heat wave. Even those who are young and physically fit can suffer heat-related illness in extreme temperatures, especially when the hot weather lasts a few days. During hot weather, outdoor activities are best done in the early morning or evening hours when it is coolest.

    “Residents should be careful during any hot weather. Watch out for your family and friends, and check in on your neighbors. Infants, young children and the elderly can have more problems in hot weather,” says MaryEllen Odell. “During extreme heat events, cooling centers are opened during the day for Putnam residents.”
