Gary Pietropaolo
A great loss to all who knew him. RIP.

It’s with heavy hearts that we’ve been informed former University Police Officer Gary Pietropaolo succumbed to injuries he received in an off duty motorcycle accident.
Gary, a graduate of the Westchester County Police academy in 2011, worked for UPD for five years. In 2016 he transferred to the Town of Carmel Police Dept.
For those of us who had the chance to work and know Gary, he was a great officer and friend to all. We will miss Gary’s never ending smile, professionalism and caring attitude. “His tenacity for Law Enforcement was unparalleled and admired by his peers.” Our prayers are extended to his family and friends.

Rest easy, we’ll take it from here.Gary PietropaoloGary Pietropaolo

Sheriff's Sergeant Graduates From FBI National Academy

Sergeant Timothy KeithSergeant Timothy Keith

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department reports the graduation of Sheriff’s Sergeant Timothy Keith from the Federal Bureau of Investigation National Academy in Quantico, Virginia on June 7, 2017.

Sergeant Keith, who is a supervisor in the Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division and a K-9 handler, was among 228 law enforcement officials hailing from 47 states and the District of Columbia, 24 foreign nations, five branches of the United States military and seven federal civilian agencies who attended the 268th Session of the Academy. Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe was the principal speaker at the graduation ceremony, held at the Virginia campus.

Internationally renowned for its academic excellence, the FBI National Academy is a ten-week program of advanced communication, leadership and fitness training. Admission to the Academy is highly selective, with candidates nominated by their agencies to attend based upon the officer’s proven record of law enforcement service. Less than one percent of America’s law enforcement officials, and an even smaller percentage of nominees applying from other countries, are selected to attend the program. Since the inception of the Academy in 1935, the Academy has turned out some 50,141 graduates from the U.S. and abroad.
