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

Sadly #k9friday is early this week as we remember and thank K9 Duncan. In 2016, K9 Duncan retired from Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.

She was 10-years-old and served at the Sheriff’s Department as a certified patrol, tracking and narcotics dog for eight years. During her career with the Sheriff’s Office, she was credited with over 300 narcotics arrests and solving over two dozen property related crimes. K9 Duncan is also credited with numerous tracks where she located criminals and missing persons, the most memorable being a two-year-old child who went missing in the Roaring Brook area of the Town of Putnam Valley. K9 Duncan tracked the child to a wooded area where Deputy Vincent Dalo heard the faint cry of a child who was then found behind a tree safe but scared.

K9 Duncan, we thank you for your service, keeping your handler safe and protecting our community.

Two Women Rescued From Carbon Monoxide Poisoning in Carmel Home

–MOTHER’S GARBLED TEXTS TO DAUGHTER PROMPTED FRIEND’S CHECK & DISCOVERY OF UNCONCIOUS VICTIMS –

–WOMEN CARRIED TO SAFETY BY RESCUERS–

Town of Carmel Police Chief Michael Cazzari, Carmel Volunteer Fire Department Chief David DiRienzo and the Putnam County Sheriff report that two women were rescued on Monday, November 13th, after they were rendered unconscious by carbon monoxide poisoning in their Carmel home. The victims, women aged 61 and 89, survived after rescuers carried them out of the house.

At around noon on November 13th, the 61-year-old woman sent text messages to her daughter, who was out of the area. As those messages became incoherent, the daughter became concerned and tried to telephone her mother. When her mother did not answer the phone, the daughter called a friend and asked her to check on the welfare of her mother and grandmother at the house, a single family residence on North Gate Road in Carmel.

The friend went to the house, where she heard the sound of a carbon monoxide alarm going off inside and could see the 89-year-old grandmother lying unconscious on the floor in a bedroom near the front door. The friend called 911 and reported the situation.

Within a few minutes, Carmel Police Department Officer James Terrazas, Carmel Fire Department Firefighter Joseph Fernandez and Sheriff’s Deputy Andrew Kristan arrived at the scene. Officer Terrazas and Firefighter Fernandez went into the house and pulled the grandmother from the front bedroom to the front door, as Deputy Kristan searched the house for more victims. The deputy found the 61-year-old woman unconscious in a back bedroom, and he and Officer Terrazas carried her out of the house.
