K9 Satch
It’s time for #K9Friday and @pcso_k9satch is ready to skid steer into the weekend! Who wants to be his co-pilot? #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #sheriffK9 #malinois #bringtreats
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
Unit 212
#throwbackthursday Circa 1989. The Deputy driving Unit 212 was about to take his dinner break at Papa John’s. Stopped on Route 9 waiting for north bound traffic to pass so he could make a left turn, this patrol unit was suddenly struck and thrown forward as the vehicle that struck it passed on the right and went off the shoulder. The Deputy suffer neck and back injuries, but returned to work a day later. We have always been (and will continue to be!) #putnamstrong! #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #roadpatrol
Half Staff
The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Center lowered their flags to half-mast/half-staff in memory of those who have been lost to the Corona Virus/COVID-19, both in Putnam County, New York, and beyond. Every life is precious. May their memories be a blessing. #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #weareallinthistogether
Circa 1996 a representative of the United States Marshall’s Service is seen here presenting Sheriff Robert D. Thoubboron of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department and County Executive Robert Bondi with a check for the housing of federal inmates. This was the first payment received by the US Marshalls for housing their inmates here in Putnam County. To this day we continue this relationship with our Federal partners. Stay safe folks and enjoy the weekend. #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #putnamhistory #usmarshalls

We Are Ready to Protect and Serve


The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office is closely monitoring all information from various sources relating to the current events that have been taking place in response to the Minneapolis Police custody death of George Floyd. The safety and security of everyone who lives in, works in and visits Putnam County is of paramount importance to our public servants. The rank and file condemn acts of violence as it has no place in the much needed healing of our society. We must work together, all of us in solidarity for a better tomorrow.

While addressing multiple vigils and protests throughout the County, we are also still dealing with COVID-19 in our community. We are grateful for the strong relationships we have built and for the support that we continue to receive from folks in Putnam County during this challenging time. Your blessings are greatly appreciated and we want everyone to know we are here for you.

The Sheriff and members of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office are happy to participate in any local, peaceful protests to honor and remember George Floyd and the other victims. We acknowledge the actions of the officers involved are not acceptable.

We are aware of posts mentioning outsiders coming to Putnam County - please know, we are always ready to Protect and Serve our community.

A Public Announcement from Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr.


The tragic Police Custody Death of George Floyd on May 25th, 2020 in Minneapolis is not a reflection on all Law Enforcement Officers.

I, along with the Law Enforcement community, here in Putnam County at the Sheriff’s Department and beyond, acknowledge that the conduct of the officers involved is not acceptable, nor will it be tolerated. Throughout the Country, Law Enforcement professionals are taught proper investigative and arrest techniques and it is clear that this training was not utilized on that day by those involved.

The four Minneapolis officers involved in the death of George Floyd goes against our principles and brings discredit to an honorable profession which holds integrity to the highest standard. I can assure you that the vast majority of the Law Enforcement Officers in the US are good police and do not behave in the manner that was displayed on that horrible day.

As police officers we strive to be members of the community we serve and build relationships with everyone with whom we come into contact. Sacrifices are made by the men and women who put their lives on the line every single day to be your shield. Our community-based relationships are vital for everyone as it makes all of us better and it enables law enforcement to serve the public we are sworn to serve and provide a safer environment for everyone.

Robert L. Langley, Jr.
Sheriff of Putnam County, NY
