#tbt The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office is no stranger to great old fashioned police work. Such was the case here in March of 1981, when Deputy Sheriff Raymond V. Trotta and Investigator Gordon T. Allen, investigated a case of criminal mischief to headstones in the Raymond Hill Cemetery in Carmel. In this case, 152 headstones were damaged and the investigation resulted in the arrest of two 16 year old youths. What Trotta and Allen may not have been aware of at the time is, that the headstone that appears in this photo, belongs to the former Sheriff of Putnam County, Charles T. Brewster. Sheriff Brewster served Putnam County from 1856 to 1858. Did their investigation get a little help from above? Maybe… #pcso #putnamcountyny #putnamhistory

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

Camping for a week at the Durland Scout Reservation made even more fun with a visit from K9 Flash and his handler Deputy Randel Hill.

Thanks to them for a lifetime of memories for some well deserving kids. And thanks Deputy Hill and Flash! #pcso #putnamcountyny #policedog #americanbloodhound #bsa #boyscoutsofamerica

Sheriff's Department Warns Citizens About NYSEG Phone Scam

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. advises that citizens should be aware of an NYSEG “Green Dot Money Paks” Phone Scam. Over the past few years, during the summer months, local businesses in Putnam County have received phone calls from phony individuals who claim to be representatives from New York State Electric and Gas. The scammer informs the businesses that they are behind in their electricity bill. The scammer then warns the business that to avoid having their electric service from being shut off, they have to make payment immediately.

Sheriff’s Department Launches New Marine-Patrol Vessel

New Boat

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. announces the launching of a new marine patrol vessel, which will be utilized to patrol Lake Mahopac. The new vessel, a 2012 (twenty-one foot) Boston Whaler, replaces a 1998 (eighteen foot) Boston Whaler. In addition to a standard marine patrol vessel package, the new vessel comes equipped with Radar and a Forward Looking Infrared Camera. The newly equipped vessel will increase the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department’s capabilities for searching in the dark and handling emergencies on Lake Mahopac. The vessel was provided to the Sheriff’s Department by the New York State Department of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, at no cost to Putnam County. The Sheriff’s Department also participates in a New York State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation reimbursement program, which provides funding for all of the Sheriff’s Department’s Marine Patrol operations.

Deputy for a Day

Sheriff Langley with Erie County brothers Matthew and Andrew who is battling brain cancer. The Sheriff presented both with the lapel pins and challenge coins. The Erie County Sheriff’s Department arranged a staged drug bust and called Andrew up asking for him to come in and help them. They did the whole thing as an emergency response take down and cuffed up the “bad guy.” Andrew had been sworn in by Erie County Sheriff Howard as a deputy for the day. Everyone wishes Andrew and his family all the best! #nyssa2018

Carmel PBA Scam Alert

Scam Alert

The Carmel Police has received a complaint of a scam in which the subject(s) are “spoofing” the telephone number of the “Town of Carmel” or “Town of Carmel Police”.

The victim reported that a male caller with a Middle Eastern accent was trying to gather information about cell phone software from the victim and appeared to be calling from a Town of Carmel Official Phone Line. We believe if the scam continued, the scammer would have attempted to gain remote access into the victims phone or computer and extort money from the victim once the device takeover took place. This is a common scam and thankfully our victim recognized the scam right away and did not lose any money or give any personal information. Please warn elderly relatives of potential phone scams. Do not give any information out and when in doubt hang up and call the police directly.
