Deputy Dan
In this week’s #tbt photo, Deputy Sheriff Daniel M. Stephens surveys the damage to the windshield of his patrol car caused by a shotgun blast. In September of 1977, Stephens was dispatched to a residence on Prospect Hill Road in Brewster, for a report of a burglary that had occurred sometime in the past. The report was false and was, in fact, an ambush on law enforcement. When Stephens arrived and began to approach the residence, he stopped and turned back to return to his patrol car, because he forgot his hat. As Danny reached into the front seat of his car for his hat, a blast from a shotgun fired from within the house struck the windshield. Stephens was not injured during this incident. The suspect was found deceased in the residence from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Deputy Stephens retired years later from the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office as a Senior Investigator and is currently an elected Putnam County Coroner. #pcsoNY #putnamcountyny #putnamsafeputnamstrong #putnamhistory #throwbackthursday #besafeoutthere

Bob Durkin
Welcome to your first #tbt of 2019! We don’t know if it’s the car or the deputy, but this sure looks like a scene right out of Mayberry R.F.D.. Actually, this is Deputy Sheriff Robert Durkin. Bob served in many capacities within the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office, including, Deputy Sheriff, Criminal Investigator, Correction Officer, and Correction Sergeant. In this photo, Bob was serving civil papers in the Town of Kent, ca. 1963. #pcsoNY #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #oldpolicecar
Book ‘em
Last one of 2018! This week’s #tbt photo features from left to right, Corporal Thomas Bradley, Undersheriff George A. Grenier, Sheriff Raynor Weizenecker and an unidentified prisoner. We are guessing that this conversation and the handcuffs may have something to do with the handgun George Grenier is holding. Photo ca 1968. #pcsony #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory

Tree of Life Synagogue

My heart goes out to all those at the Tree of Life Synagogue and to the families of those whose lives were taken in a senseless act of hate and violence. May their memories be blessings.

The members of the Sheriff’s Department conduct regular security checks on all places of worship to ensure everyone’s safety. When events such as what took place at the Tree of Life Synagogue take place the Sheriff’s Department takes the appropriate course of action and increases patrols at all places of worship and reaches out to members of various faiths to provide any assistance they may need during these heightened times.

I encourage everyone in our community should they hear something or see something of concern please reach out to law enforcement and inform them.

Senator Chuck Schumer at the Sheriff's Office

NY Senator Chuck Schumer held a press conference today at 3 County Center. He was joined by Sheriff Langley, County Executive Odell, Captains and members of the Department. The Senator was there to launch an initiative regarding an upcoming anti-opioids package. The new P.O.W.E.R. (Providing Officers with Electronic Resources) Act grant program will help local police pay for high tech chemical detection tools that will sniff out illegal drugs such as fentanyl. According to drug enforcement experts, it only takes a grain of fentanyl to cause a deadly reaction. Afterwards Sheriff was interviewed by WAMC Northeast Public Radio Allison Dunne about The need for financial assistance from the federal government to fund law enforcement with the Opioid crisis. We need to end this epidemic as one death is one too many. Thank you to the Senator for looking to arm our officers with the latest and greatest. @chuckschumer #pcso #putnamcountyny #putnamsafeputnamstrong #opioidepidemic #POWER
