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

Putnam County to Participate in Statewide STOP-DWI Thanksgiving Crackdown Enforcement Effort November 25 - November 29, 2020


Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr., Town of Carmel Police Department Interim Commanding Officer John Dearman and Town of Kent Police Department Chief Kevin Owens announced today that Law Enforcement agencies in Putnam County will participate in a special enforcement effort to crack down on impaired driving.

This Thanksgiving weekend, millions will hit the roads eager to spend time with family and friends. It’s one of the busiest travel times of the year, and unfortunately, more people on the roadways means the potential for more vehicle crashes. In a combined effort to stop impaired driving, prevent injuries, and save lives law enforcement officers across New York State will take to the roads. The statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown efforts start on November 25, 2020, and will end on November 29, 2020.

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.

The STOP-DWI Thanksgiving Weekend Crackdown is one of many statewide enforcement initiatives promoted by STOP-DWI NY and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. Throughout the remainder of the year, the Statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign will also target the national Holiday Season in December.

While STOP-DWI efforts across New York have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol and drug-related fatalities, still too many lives are being lost because of crashes caused by drunk or impaired drivers. Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving.

Impaired driving is completely preventable. All it takes is a little planning. Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

A Statement From Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr.


On November 11, 2020, Governor Cuomo announced that effective Friday, November 13, 2020, pursuant to Executive Law, the State of New York is limiting non-essential indoor gatherings at a private residence to 10 people.

I am not encouraging people to have large gatherings in their homes, but rather asking everyone to use their own best judgment to remain safe. Would a gathering of eleven people be a greater danger than a gathering of ten, or would a gathering of nine people be substantially less dangerous? I’m not certain of what the correct number for safety would be and doubt if any one does.

There are a lot of factors that would come into play in determining how many people to have in your home. Are any of them at high-risk? From where are they travelling? Is it more or less likely that they have been recently exposed to the disease? Are they regularly in your circle of contacts anyway? Is your home large enough that you can safely accommodate a larger number of guests? These are questions that I believe each family needs to answer themselves.

Rather than issuing orders, which are, at best, impossible to enforce, and, at worst, unconstitutional, the Governor would better serve the People of New York if he encouraged our citizens to be cautious, use good judgment in weighing risk factors, protect the vulnerable, and enjoy our families and our great gathering traditions only in ways that are safe, until we can get back to normal.

As Sheriff, I see a better use of our resources than to disrupt families celebrating this national holiday. I wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving.
