1975 Dodge Monaco
This week’s #throwbackthursday photo is for the car buffs. This 1975 Dodge Monaco was a “used car” when it came into the Sheriff’s Department fleet back in the mid 70’s. Back in the day, the Village of Brewster had its own police department. Not the one it has now, a different one. At one point, the department was disbanded in lieu of a contract for Sheriff’s Department coverage, 24/7. This car came with the deal. This was the old Brewster Four-Zero, it became Sheriff’s Unit #231. Have you ever seen a more ridiculous light rack?

No, this is not a photo from Woodstock, 1969. In this week’s #throwbackthursday photo, we feature Putnam County Sheriff’s Department Narcotics Investigators William Kraus (left) and Michael Martin (right). The Investigators are shown here eradicating marijuana as part of an investigation into an outdoor grow operation in the Town of Patterson in 1990. You can see in the photo that they are surrounded by marijuana plants. Speaking of the plants, are these guys short, or are these plants really tall? Bill Kraus was a member of the Narcotic Enforcement Unit for 26 years and is still serving proudly as an investigator in the B.C.I., with a total of 37 years with the Sheriff’s Department. As a matter of fact, Bill Kraus and Mike Martin were hired on the same day. Michael Martin was a member of the NEU for 10 years and an investigator for just as long. Mike Martin is still serving with the department as a Consultant. We are both fortunate and glad to still have both of these men as part of the team, as they are both an asset to the Department. Thank you for your continued service! #simplythebest #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory

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.
