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.

Connolly, (left) Deputy Roger Preble, (center) and Sheriff Raynor Weizenecker, (right) ca. 1977. #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #thosewerethedays

County to Participate in Statewide STOP-DWI Super Bowl Weekend Crackdown

–Impaired Driving Crackdown runs 2/1/19-2/4/19–

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr., Town of Carmel Police Department Chief Michael Cazzari and Kent Police Department Chief Kevin Owens announced today that law enforcement in Putnam County will participate in a special enforcement effort to crackdown on impaired driving.

The statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown efforts start on 2/1/19 and will end on 2/4/19. The Super Bowl is America’s most watched national sporting event and Super Bowl Weekend is historically a deadly period for impaired driving.

Research shows that high-visibility enforcement can reduce impaired driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent. Sobriety checkpoints play a key part in raising awareness about the problem. New York State Police, County Sheriffs and municipal law enforcement agencies will collaborate across the state and will be out in force in this coordinated effort to reduce the number of alcohol related injuries and deaths.

tbt - The White Car

With all the snow, it is only appropriate to have a white car for this week’s #tbt! Even though this is a little blurry, we thought it’s still a great picture. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office didn’t get its first car until 1941. It was actually a 1941 Ford. This picture, we are reasonably certain, would have been from Sheriff Gilbert’s (pictured here) first term around 1938-1939. The car we believe actually belonged to the New York State Sheriff’s Association, which was only a few years old at the time. There was a push by the Association around that time for many counties to start a Road Patrol division and they would let different counties use the car. At that time, most sheriff’s offices only maintained a jail and a civil division. This car was either a Plymouth or Chrysler. The second photo is out of one of the earliest publications of the NYSSA. Many thanks to Deputy Sheriff John Bradley for his historical research on this and so many other of our #tbt photos. #pcsoNY #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #besafeoutthere #vintagecar #policecar #goodolddays #thewhitecar
