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

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.
