Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday, Abraham Lincoln.
Believe it or not, it is time for yet another #throwbackthursday! There are times, no matter how well trained you are, accidents happen. The Deputy, who we shall keep anonymous, was giving chase during the midnight tour circa 1992 only to find out that his driving skills couldn’t match that of his adversary. Luckily it was only the Deputy’s pride that was injured allowing him to get back in the saddle and finish his shift. Stay safe out there! #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #putnamhistory #policecar #dodgediplomat
Jeremiah O’Connor
#throwbackthursday for this week closes the door! Jeremiah O’Connor, in this photo dated circa 1980, was hired as and was amongst one of the first Corrections Officers to work the Jail in the Historic County Courthouse. Officer O’Connor went on to become Staff Sergeant when the Jail construction for the new Sheriff’s Office and Jail was completed in 1982. Have a great day everyone!

Hannah is three today and like many Aquarians, water bearers, she is deeply motivated by the spirit of egalitarianism and enjoys teamwork and participating in communities of like-minded individuals. Sounds about right! (photo by and courtesy of M. Foxmoore/@workingdogmagazine)

For this week’s #throwbackthursday photo, we are going to adhere to our policy of not glorifying the crime or the criminal. We are sure many of you are familiar with this individual’s crimes, however, we will just say, that in this photo, we have Sgt. Bill Clinton (L) and Sgt. Anthony Edwards (R) escorting a man convicted of a double homicide to his new home for the next 25 years. ca 1979. #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamsafeputnamstrong #putnamhistory #thosewerethedays

tbt March 28th 2019

For this week’s #tbt, we have late Sheriff Raynor Weizenecker giving a tour of the new Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Facility to Duane Young. Duane Young, was a retired New York City Police Officer, Town of Carmel Town Justice, local attorney and good friend to the women and men of the Sheriff’s Office. In the first photo, it appears as though Sheriff Weizenecker is trying to talk Judge Young into sampling some jail food. Duane has that “I will if you go first” kind of look on his face. In the second photo, Correction Sergeant Robert Durkin, (with his back to the camera, far left) explains the booking procedure. #ThrowbackThursday to ca 1983. #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #lawenforcement #putnamhistory #thosewerethedays #jailfooditswhatsfordinner

Sheriff Robert Langley Announces New York State Sheriffs' Institute Membership Drive


The New York State Sheriffs’ Institute will begin its annual Honorary Membership drive in Putnam County within the next ten days according to Sheriff Robert Langley. The New York State Sheriffs’ Institute was established in 1979. It is a not-for-profit corporation, tax exempt organization, and contributions to the Institute are tax deductible.

While the Sheriff’s Office is a unit of county government, many of the concerns of Sheriffs and other law enforcement agencies are best addressed on a statewide level. The Sheriffs’ Institute provides centralized training programs and services for all Sheriffs’ Offices, where those programs and services would be unavailable or impractical on a single county basis.

The flagship program of the Sheriffs’ Institute is the Sheriffs’ Summer Camp for economically challenged children. The Sheriffs’ Camp, in its 42nd year of operation, is located on Keuka Lake and 840 children from across New York State attend each summer. The Sheriffs’ Institute pays the entire cost of the camp stay and transportation. Most children attending wouldn’t otherwise have an opportunity for vacation travel or a summer camp experience.
