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
