Deputy Dan
In this week’s #tbt photo, Deputy Sheriff Daniel M. Stephens surveys the damage to the windshield of his patrol car caused by a shotgun blast. In September of 1977, Stephens was dispatched to a residence on Prospect Hill Road in Brewster, for a report of a burglary that had occurred sometime in the past. The report was false and was, in fact, an ambush on law enforcement. When Stephens arrived and began to approach the residence, he stopped and turned back to return to his patrol car, because he forgot his hat. As Danny reached into the front seat of his car for his hat, a blast from a shotgun fired from within the house struck the windshield. Stephens was not injured during this incident. The suspect was found deceased in the residence from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Deputy Stephens retired years later from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office as a Senior Investigator and is currently an elected Putnam County Coroner. #pcsoNY #putnamcountyny #putnamsafeputnamstrong #putnamhistory #throwbackthursday #besafeoutthere

Bob Durkin
Welcome to your first #tbt of 2019! We don’t know if it’s the car or the deputy, but this sure looks like a scene right out of Mayberry R.F.D.. Actually, this is Deputy Sheriff Robert Durkin. Bob served in many capacities within the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, including, Deputy Sheriff, Criminal Investigator, Correction Officer, and Correction Sergeant. In this photo, Bob was serving civil papers in the Town of Kent, ca. 1963. #pcsoNY #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #oldpolicecar
Book ‘em
Last one of 2018! This week’s #tbt photo features from left to right, Corporal Thomas Bradley, Undersheriff George A. Grenier, Sheriff Raynor Weizenecker and an unidentified prisoner. We are guessing that this conversation and the handcuffs may have something to do with the handgun George Grenier is holding. Photo ca 1968. #pcsony #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory

From the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department and Traffic Safety Board
Milling and Resurfacing Project from Route 6 to Route 52 and Route 6 to Route 312
The long awaited road work and paving for the roads mentioned above is about to begin and you might have already seen the Variable Message Boards flashing

Roadwork Ahead 9 am - 4 pm

Preliminary work has begun in the catch basins with the expected milling and filling work to begin approximately June 11th. This project is expected to take between 3-5 weeks, working during the day and some nights, and is dependent on weather conditions and construction unknowns. As we have been told by the NYS DOT Project Engineer, be prepared for some traffic inconveniences, loud noises, dust/dirt and general frustrations. However, please remember, as with most construction renovations, the outcome will be well worth it. The safety of our residents, our local businesses, school schedules and emergency services have all been discussed as to keeping the impact of the project at a minimal.

For up-to-date information, please look at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department website and Facebook page, the Putnam County Traffic Safety Board’s website and Facebook page, the Town of Carmel website and your local newspapers.
