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

A Thank You from Sheriff Langley

This past year has proved to be challenging. All of us have been touched by COVID in some way.

Today, Sheriff Langley and the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office recognized these communities’ heroes with an outdoor ceremony.

Sheriff Langley thanked those who contributed, supported and continue to support our women and men during COVID pandemic.

As ever, a special thank you goes to the tireless, generous Marianne Chaluisan. Further thanks go to:

  • Albana Morrone, Morrine’s Deli
  • Aracely & Phil Kuszel, Klazy Jax
  • Benvenuto’s Restaurant

Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. Announces Membership Drive

summer camp

The New York State Sheriffs’ Institute will begin its annual Honorary Membership drive in Putnam County within the next ten days, according to Sheriff Robert Langley. The New York State Sheriffs’ Institute was established in 1979. It is a not-for-profit corporation, tax-exempt organization, and contributions to the Institute are tax-deductible. While the Sheriff’s Office is a unit of county government, many of the concerns of Sheriffs and other law enforcement agencies are best addressed on a statewide level. The Sheriffs’ Institute provides centralized training programs and services for all Sheriffs’ Offices, where those programs and services would be unavailable or impractical on a single county basis.

The flagship program of the Sheriffs’ Institute is the Sheriffs’ Summer Camp for economically challenged children. The Sheriffs’ Camp, in its 45th year of operation, is located on Keuka Lake and 840 children from across New York State attend each summer. The Sheriffs’ Institute pays the entire cost of the camp stay and transportation. Most children attending wouldn’t otherwise have an opportunity for vacation travel or a summer camp experience.

The Sheriffs’ Camp program combines summer recreation with activities designed to teach an understanding of, and respect for, our laws and the men and women who enforce them. The strong camper to counselor ratio allows for individual attention with an emphasis on the development of self-esteem.

“In these difficult economic times we cannot forget our youth who will not have the opportunity for a summer camp experience or a summer vacation,” Sheriff Langley said. “By becoming an honorary member you are supporting the Sheriffs’ Summer Camp for economically disadvantaged children.”

In addition, the Sheriffs’ Institute operates a scholarship program that provides one scholarship to each of New York State’s Community College’s Criminal Justice Programs. This program is designed to help attract the best and the brightest to the criminal justice vocation.

For more information about the Sheriffs’ Summer Camp and other Sheriffs’ Institute Programs, visit our website, or simply google “Sheriffs’ Institute kids” and it will be your first option.

Financial support for many of the Sheriffs’ Institute programs comes from Honorary Membership dues. Invitations for Honorary Membership are extended on a non-partisan basis, and the invitees are selected at random. Any persons interested in supporting the efforts of the New York State Sheriffs’ Institute by becoming an Honorary Member should contact the Sheriff if they do not receive an invitation in the mail, or visit our web site at: to download an application. All donations made to the New York State Sheriffs’ Institute are tax-deductible. In addition, the Sheriffs’ Institute is registered with the New York State Attorney General’s Charities Bureau.
