Unit 212
#throwbackthursday Circa 1989. The Deputy driving Unit 212 was about to take his dinner break at Papa John’s. Stopped on Route 9 waiting for north bound traffic to pass so he could make a left turn, this patrol unit was suddenly struck and thrown forward as the vehicle that struck it passed on the right and went off the shoulder. The Deputy suffer neck and back injuries, but returned to work a day later. We have always been (and will continue to be!) #putnamstrong! #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #roadpatrol

A Message From Sheriff Langley


Currently the State of New York has declared a State of Emergency due to COVID-19 also known as the Corona virus. The best defense to combat the spread of this virus is to wash your hands often thoroughly with soap and water. The recommended time to wash one’s hands should be at least 20 seconds with hot water which is about as long as it takes to say the alphabet. Lysol is recommended by the Putnam County Commissioner of Health to sanitize surfaces that may contain transfer from an infected person(s). Keep calm and wash your hands! #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #coronavirus #covid19 #putnamhealthyputnamstrong #washyourhands

Flashback - Emergency Response Team 2013

#FlashbackFriday! Circa 2013, a vehicle belonging to murder suspect who was believed to be armed and dangerous after killing one person and critically injuring another in Garden City, NY was located at Little Stony Point.

Jail Construction 1980

If it is almost the weekend then it must be time for #throwbackthursday! For this last week of February, we have from ca 1980, the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department’s construction well under way for the new Jail which was mandated by New York State Commission of Corrections. The original jail was housed in the basement of the Historic Courthouse and was found to be unfit to house prisoners in the late 70’s. Since the opening of the new Sheriff’s Department in 1982, the facility was expanded again in 1995 as the previous jail capacity was inadequate. Sheriff Raynor Weizenecker and Dave Buren are in the first photo. If you know the third, please post below. See you next time! #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #putnamhistory

A Public Service Announcement From Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr.


Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr. reports an increase in counterfeit currency cases throughout the County and adjoining Counties. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Department is actively investigating cases in which counterfeit $100 bills are being used to make smaller purchases at convenience stores, drug stores and eateries. The small purchase allows the suspect(s) in these cases to walk away with legal US currency leaving their unsuspecting victims short financially. Sheriff Langley would like to remind all merchants and consumers to check currency passed during a transactions for its authenticity. Counterfeit currency can easily by detected using the proper tools commercially available or, if you suspect the currency is counterfeit, you can contact your local law enforcement agency. #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #funnymoney #putnamsmartputnamstrong
