Hello #flashbackfriday! Circa 1980’s
Sergeant Anthony Edwards preparing to saddle his 1979 Plymouth Volare Pursuit package patrol unit. Sergeant Edwards served the people of Putnam County with pride and dedication and brought not only the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department to the forefront of technology but changed police reporting national by implementing the use of computers during their infancy for police reports. Anthony Edwards would to this day be a tremendous asset not only to the Sheriff’s Department but to our community due to his passion and knowledge in the communications and reporting systems of emergency services. #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #putnamhistoryny #plymouthvolare #policecar #vintagecar

World Mental Health Day

mental health day

This year’s World Mental Health Day, on 10 October, comes at a time when our daily lives have changed considerably as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The past months have brought many challenges: for health-care workers, providing care in difficult circumstances, going to work fearful of bringing COVID-19 home with them; for students, adapting to taking classes from home, with little contact with teachers and friends, and anxious about their futures; for workers whose livelihoods are threatened; for the vast number of people caught in poverty or in fragile humanitarian settings with extremely limited protection from COVID-19; and for people with mental health conditions, many experiencing even greater social isolation than before. And this is to say nothing of managing the grief of losing a loved one, sometimes without being able to say goodbye.

The economic consequences of the pandemic are already being felt, as companies let staff go in an effort to save their businesses, or indeed shut down completely.

Given past experience of emergencies, it is expected that the need for mental health and psychosocial support will substantially increase in the coming months and years. Investment in mental health programmes at the national and international levels, which have already suffered from years of chronic underfunding, is now more important than it has ever been.

This is why the goal of this year’s World Mental Health Day campaign is increased investment in mental health. (Text courtesy of WHO)

“When I see his badge, It’s not just a number, It signifies honor and has my ultimate respect. His badge that I proudly stand beside lies upon his chest close to his heart, because this call on his life as an officer, takes his heart . So while you know my officer as a number, know he is more than that. He is my hero, my protection, the love of my life, and of course …. my heart.”
