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

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department reports that his office has dedicated a new patrol motorcycle to the memory of Mark R. Gilmore, who was the Sheriff’s Senior Investigator in charge of the Narcotics Enforcement Unit at the time of his death on March 1, 2017. He died at age 54 from a heart attack suffered while off-duty.

Senior Investigator Gilmore also served as a motorcycle officer during his 28-year career in the Sheriff’s Office. “In recognition of Mark’s devotion to duty as a motor officer over the years, as well as his life-long personal love for riding, we thought it most fitting to memorialize Mark by emblazoning his name and badge number on the new motorcycle,” said the Sheriff.

The motorcycle was unveiled on Saturday, July 22nd, at a fundraising event held to benefit Sr. Inv. Gilmore’s widow, Amy, and his daughter Mattingly, and also to benefit Deputy Sheriff Michael Schmidt and his family. Deputy Schmidt, who has served as the Youth & Community Services Officer for the Sheriff’s Office, is battling a rare form of cancer. The event, organized by the Sheriff’s Office PBA, was a barbecue held at the Patterson Fire Department grounds that was attended by many Sheriff’s Office employees and their families, as well as a number of police officers from various area departments and other supporters.

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.
