Captain Butler
For this week’s #throwbackthursday photo, we feature Captain Gerald P. Butler, PC-21, a gentle giant. Prior to beginning his career with the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department, Gerry Butler was a member of the Village of Brewster Police Department. As a Deputy Sheriff assigned to the Road Patrol Division, Butler was one of the charter members of our S.W.A.T. Team, a unit we now refer to as the Emergency Response Team ( E.R.T.). Deputy Butler’s interest gravitated towards the County Jail duties and, as a result, Sheriff Weizenecker chose him to replace Sgt. William Clinton as the jail supervisor upon Clinton’s retirement. At that time, Butler held the title of Jail Warden, a title which was later changed to Captain. Everyone who had the pleasure of working with or knowing Gerry Butler will tell you that he was a great bowler, a great golfer, a great person and the type of person that would do anything to help anyone. Gerry was taken too soon and will always be missed. His memory may always be a blessing. Photo ca. 2001. #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory
Old car
Old police cars are always a fan favorite and this week’s #throwbackthursday offers a classic 70s cruiser that embodies all the characteristics of a vintage Department ride for which we all get nostalgic.
