Judge James Reitz

Judge Reitz

A statement from Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. on behalf of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office:

“Today we mourn the passing of The Honorable James F. Reitz who was so much more than a judge, he was family to all of us at the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office. Judge Reitz was a man who changed people’s lives through his passion for the drug court in which he always had the support and active participation of members from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office. We could go on endlessly on Judge Reitz’s accomplishments and passion for serving his community not only as Judge but as a friend to many. This is a tremendous loss for our community and he will be greatly missed by many.”

“On a personal note I am proud to say Judge Reitz was more than a Judge to me, he was a friend who I respected and admired. Rest in peace Jim. Your passing will be felt by many. May his memory be a blessing.”

Sadly #k9friday is early this week as we remember and thank K9 Duncan. In 2016, K9 Duncan retired from Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.

She was 10-years-old and served at the Sheriff’s Department as a certified patrol, tracking and narcotics dog for eight years. During her career with the Sheriff’s Office, she was credited with over 300 narcotics arrests and solving over two dozen property related crimes. K9 Duncan is also credited with numerous tracks where she located criminals and missing persons, the most memorable being a two-year-old child who went missing in the Roaring Brook area of the Town of Putnam Valley. K9 Duncan tracked the child to a wooded area where Deputy Vincent Dalo heard the faint cry of a child who was then found behind a tree safe but scared.

K9 Duncan, we thank you for your service, keeping your handler safe and protecting our community.
