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

Cold Spring Sheriff's Town Hall

Some photos from last night’s first ever Putnam County Sheriff’s Office Town Hall. It was held at the Old VFW Hall in Cold Spring. Despite the challenging rainy weather, there was a great turn out! Topics addressed ranged from the opioid crisis, mental health, the department’s new drone, the K9s and school safety, just to name a few. The team was joined by Cold Spring Officer in Charge Larry Burke demonstrating the Department’s commitment to work along with the other agencies in the County. Have a question you would like the panel to discuss? Please join Sheriff Langley and his team on Thursday, October 18 in Carmel at the BES Auditorium for the next Town Hall! And a special shout out to Homestyle Desserts for sponsoring and providing everyone with the best cookies and pastries and coffee for the event. #pcso #putnamcountyny #putnamsafeputnamstrong #communitypolicing #coldspringpolicedepartment @old.vfw.hall @homestyle_desserts_bakery
