K9 Flash
Deputy Hill’s #K9Flash is always a favorite wherever he goes. The Putnam Hospital Kids Day was no exception. Flash loves to meet new people and receive pets. It’s all in a day’s work for the sharpest nose in Putnam County! #k9friday #k9flash #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #policedog #workingdog #americanbloodhound #putnamsafeputnamstrong #sheriffk9
Just another day in Carmel, New York, right? We’re sure many will recognize this intersection, Fair Street and Gleneida Avenue or Route 52 or Smadbeck Avenue, depends who you ask and how long they’ve been in town. Big goings on in the center of town, a four car accident. Standing on the left is Deputy Vincent Gugliuzza, PC-23 and if you knew Vinny or Vince, you can tell what he was thinking at this time, I wish I took today off. On the far left is the Putnam County Courier’s very own, Buzz Burr. Buzz was the Eric Gross of the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s, a great guy and friend of the Sheriff’s Office. Check out the cars, the bell-bottoms, oh, and the hair. See anyone you know? ca 1974 #throwbackthursday #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #carmelny

Police Week
Today we join and stand with our brothers and sisters in law enforcement as we recognize this day and all those who gave their lives as the ultimate sacrifice. #putnamcountyny #putnamcountyny #thankyouforyourservice Repost courtesy of and with thanks to @ofcmatthurley

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.

This week, today and always, we remember and honor the heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and offer our support to those who serve and protect throughout our communities everyday.

tbt - Prisoner Escort 1950s

Sometimes back in the day, it was difficult to tell the good guys from the bad guys. In this photo, we have to help you out. The individual in the middle is the bad guy, being escorted from the Putnam County Courthouse by Inv. Curt Rydell on the left and Inv. Robert Steele on the right. (Steele later became the Undersheriff) Sheriff Frank Lyden can be seen in the back (with the white hair) between Steele and the prisoner. Some interesting observations about this photo. Notice that the prisoner is smoking. The cigarette is in his left hand while he is handcuffed to Inv. Steele’s right hand. The prisoner’s right hand is also handcuffed to Inv. Rydell’s left hand. We love the double-breasted suits and the Fedora hat. Also, take notice of the seriousness of the looks on all of the faces of the lawmen compared to the smirk on the face of the prisoner. Again, our policy is not to glorify the crime or the criminal. However, we doubt the prisoner had this same smirk on his face when he was executed in the electric chair at Sing Sing State Prison for his crime. ca 1952. #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #perpwalk #throwbackthursday

Medication Take Back Day

Gleneida Avenue Fire

October 22, 1974 was a day that changed the landscape of Main Street (Gleneida Avenue) in Carmel forever. A massive fire destroyed and or damaged many businesses, the largest of which was Morettini’s Variety Store. Other businesses were Cappiello’s Jewelers, Carmel Liquor Store, Kurtz’s Newspaper Store, Smalley’s Inn, Amber Waves of Grain, Montgomery Ward and Simpson’s Drug Store. The estimated dollar amount of the damage at the time was $850,000. Can you imagine what that would be today? This fire was fought by over 200 volunteer firefighters while police from the Towns of Kent, Carmel, New York State Police and the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office handled traffic, crowd control and security of the scene. This site is now the current home of the Carmel Diner. Thank you Lt. Anthony Edwards (Retired) for the photos! #throwbackthursday #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #carmelNY
