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

School's Open - Drive Carefully, Putnam County Sheriff's Department Urges!

SPO John SegnitSPO John Segnit Lakeview Elementary School, Mahopac NY

The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department is urging parents to teach their children some simple safety tips before they head back to school.

“Very soon, thousands of children will be walking to and from school and school buses- many for the first time,” said Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. “Everyone who drives has a responsibility to be especially careful during this busy time for youngsters.”

Hundreds of young children are killed each year in collisions with motor vehicles, and thousands more are severely injured, the Sheriff said. Children tend to be at greater risk during the back-to-school period because they are thinking more about seeing old friends and new teachers than watching for cars and trucks. Others are going to school for the first time.

Drivers should be especially cautious in school areas, keeping their speed at or below posted limits and being prepared to stop, on both sides of the street, for school buses with flashing red lights, as required by New York State law.

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr., Town of Carmel Police Department Chief Michael Cazzari and Kent Police Department Acting Chief Kevin Owens announced today that their departments will participate in a special enforcement effort to crack down on impaired driving.

While we spend the Labor Day holiday and the end of summer celebrating with our loved ones, law enforcement officers across New York State will take to the roads in an effort to stop impaired driving, prevent injuries and save lives. The statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown efforts start on August 17, 2018 and will end on September 3, 2018.

Research shows that high-visibility enforcement can reduce impaired driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent. Sobriety checkpoints play a key part in raising awareness about the problem. New York State Police, County Sheriff and municipal law enforcement agencies across the state will be out in force.

Honoring Veterans on Purple Heart Day

Today we remember and honor every Purple Heart recipient but, in particular, our very own Charlie Moore. In the first photo, he is receiving an award from the Putnam County Marine Corps League (photo courtesy of). The second photo, taken January 26, 1972, is in tribute to his days at the #PCSO when he worked at the Youth Aid Bureau. He is demonstrating “Stanley the Talking Bicycle.” Stanley was transported from one school to another and used to promote bicycle safety, way before helmets for bicyclist were even thought of. Prior to joining the Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Moore served his Country with distinction in the United States Marine Corps, in Viet Nam, where he earned the Purple Heart. Thank you Deputy Moore for all your service and to all who served and gave the ultimate sacrifice. We salute and remember you. #purpleheart #thankaveteran
