1975 Dodge Monaco
This week’s #throwbackthursday photo is for the car buffs. This 1975 Dodge Monaco was a “used car” when it came into the Sheriff’s Department fleet back in the mid 70’s. Back in the day, the Village of Brewster had its own police department. Not the one it has now, a different one. At one point, the department was disbanded in lieu of a contract for Sheriff’s Department coverage, 24/7. This car came with the deal. This was the old Brewster Four-Zero, it became Sheriff’s Unit #231. Have you ever seen a more ridiculous light rack?

Recently, we teamed up with the @putnamsheriff department, providing one of our facilities for emergency response training. We’re proud to support first responders. A big thank you to those that serve for all that they do.

Thank you @nyseandg/twitter for the nice shout out and for providing your facility. It is much appreciated. #putnamsheriffny #putnamsafeputnamstrong #teamwork

K9 Char
When K9 Char is not out working in the field, he is relaxing with his friends in Communications. He has been known to answer a call or two… Happy #K9Friday long weekend everyone! #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #policedog #workingdog #sheriffK9 #accelerantdetectionk9 #policedogsofinstagram
No, this is not a photo from Woodstock, 1969. In this week’s #throwbackthursday photo, we feature Putnam County Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Investigators William Kraus (left) and Michael Martin (right). The Investigators are shown here eradicating marijuana as part of an investigation into an outdoor grow operation in the Town of Patterson in 1990. You can see in the photo that they are surrounded by marijuana plants. Speaking of the plants, are these guys short, or are these plants really tall? Bill Kraus was a member of the Narcotic Enforcement Unit for 26 years and is still serving proudly as an investigator in the B.C.I., with a total of 37 years with the Sheriff’s Department. As a matter of fact, Bill Kraus and Mike Martin were hired on the same day. Michael Martin was a member of the NEU for 10 years and an investigator for just as long. Mike Martin is still serving with the department as a Consultant. We are both fortunate and glad to still have both of these men as part of the team, as they are both an asset to the Department. Thank you for your continued service! #simplythebest #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory

tbt - Deputy Sheriff Wayne J. Dilgard

“Hey, it’s the weekend… The sheriff is not around, let me undo my tie… Who’s going to see me?”

For this week’s #throwbackthursday photo, we have Deputy Sheriff Wayne J. Dilgard. Wayne is pictured here, enjoying a “quiet” moment in the Communications Room, which was his area of expertise. Dep. Dilgard was phenomenal at his job and made it look easy. We are sure being a Lake Carmel Volunteer Firefighter helped a little too. When Wayne was on the desk and a deputy was on the road making an arrest, Wayne was the type of coworker that would get your paperwork started for you while you were on your way back to the facility and get the judge lined up for the arraignment. For a period of time, Wayne was the Communications Sergeant and later transferred to the New York State Court Officers.
