Sheriffs’ Summer Camp
Sheriffs’ Summer Camp is a very active place as you can see in this photo, which has the look of a Grandma Moses painting. The camper to counselor ratio is 4 to 1. The Sheriffs’ Camp is intended to give boys and girls who come from an economically challenged environment an opportunity for a summer camp experience. In many cases it is the only summer “vacation” they get. The annual new membership mailing will be dropping in Putnam County the end of this week. Please keep an eye out for it and please support these deserving kids. Thank you! #pcsoNY #putnamcountyny #summercamp #putnamkids #summertimehappiness

In this week’s #tbt photo, we feature Deputy Sheriff Robert J. Sweeney, aka, the Monsignor. Here, Deputy Sweeney is congratulated by Sheriff Raynor Weizenecker for receiving the Carl F. Draxler Award. Dep. Sweeney was elected to receive this award by the Executive Committee of the New York State Sheriff’s Association in August of 1983. First presented in 1982, this award recognizes one sheriff’s office employee each year for exceptional achievement over the course of their career, demonstrated by conscientious devotion to duty and spirit of selfless public service. The award is named for the late Chemung County Sheriff Carl F. Draxler, who personified these qualities. Deputy Sweeney served with the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office between 1980 and 1983, before transferring over to the Town of Carmel Police Department where he continued to excel in his career. Bob, thank you for your contribution to the PCSO. #pcsoNY #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #putnamsafeputnamstrong #draxleraward

Stopdwi

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.
