K9 Flash
Deputy Hill’s #K9Flash is always a favorite wherever he goes. The Putnam Hospital Kids Day was no exception. Flash loves to meet new people and receive pets. It’s all in a day’s work for the sharpest nose in Putnam County! #k9friday #k9flash #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #policedog #workingdog #americanbloodhound #putnamsafeputnamstrong #sheriffk9
Just another day in Carmel, New York, right? We’re sure many will recognize this intersection, Fair Street and Gleneida Avenue or Route 52 or Smadbeck Avenue, depends who you ask and how long they’ve been in town. Big goings on in the center of town, a four car accident. Standing on the left is Deputy Vincent Gugliuzza, PC-23 and if you knew Vinny or Vince, you can tell what he was thinking at this time, I wish I took today off. On the far left is the Putnam County Courier’s very own, Buzz Burr. Buzz was the Eric Gross of the 70’s, 80’s and early 90’s, a great guy and friend of the Sheriff’s Office. Check out the cars, the bell-bottoms, oh, and the hair. See anyone you know? ca 1974 #throwbackthursday #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory #carmelny

Police Week
Today we join and stand with our brothers and sisters in law enforcement as we recognize this day and all those who gave their lives as the ultimate sacrifice. #putnamcountyny #putnamcountyny #thankyouforyourservice Repost courtesy of and with thanks to @ofcmatthurley

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy signed a proclamation which designated May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which that date falls as Police Week.

This week, today and always, we remember and honor the heroes who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and offer our support to those who serve and protect throughout our communities everyday.

A subsequent investigation by Sergeant Quick revealed that the vehicle’s driver, Nickolai Plastini, age 31, of Danbury, was allegedly intoxicated and in possession of marijuana. The investigation also revealed that Mr. Plastini was in possession of a .410 Gauge Shotgun, .410 Gauge Shotgun Shells, and a notebook appearing to be a “manifesto” by Plastini of his intent to kill people and the reasons why.

For this week’s #tbt, we have late Sheriff Raynor Weizenecker giving a tour of the new Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Facility to Duane Young. Duane Young, was a retired New York City Police Officer, Town of Carmel Town Justice, local attorney and good friend to the women and men of the Sheriff’s Office. In the first photo, it appears as though Sheriff Weizenecker is trying to talk Judge Young into sampling some jail food. Duane has that “I will if you go first” kind of look on his face. In the second photo, Correction Sergeant Robert Durkin, (with his back to the camera, far left) explains the booking procedure. #ThrowbackThursday to ca 1983. #putnamsheriffny #putnamcountyny #lawenforcement #putnamhistory #thosewerethedays #jailfooditswhatsfordinner
