A blast from the past for #K9Friday! Retired K9 Chase visited the Department during a special event. He is current PCSO K9 Flashs older brother. It is always nice to see such cherished old friends.

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

Today we announce the retirement of K9 Sentinel after many years of dedicated service.

He joined the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department in December of 2014. His handler, Sergeant Keith, did extensive training with Sentinel which led to his successful certification as a patrol and explosives detection K9.

Sentinel was presented with a proclamation and certificate of retirement by Sheriff Langley and Captain Tompkins. The members of the departments K9 Unit presented Sgt. Keith and Sentinel with a beautiful custom made plaque. And, of course, he was sent off with a Department wide salute!

Happy Retirement, Sentinel and many thanks for your dedication and service!

If You See Something, Say Something

say something

Often it takes a tragedy to remind us just how important it is to be alert. During the early morning hours of December 25, 2020 in Nashville, TN, we were all reminded to be alert and respond accordingly.

Did anyone see suspicious activity involving the Christmas Day Bomber? If they did, why didn’t they report it? Why after this horrific event are the FBI receiving over 500 tips relating to the case?

We cannot emphasize enough to everyone, See Something Say Something or Hear Something Say Something. It is so important and it could save countless lives by making one simple phone call which can even be done anonymously.

Call 911 in an Emergency or contact the

Putnam County Sheriff’s Department at 845-225-4300. #putnamsheriffNY #putnamcountyNY #seesomethingsaysomething #hearsomethingsaysomething #bealert

Pistol Permit Scam Alert


The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office is issuing a scam alert regarding notification of pistol permits. If you receive a message like this, please do not reply, take a screenshot and let us know at 845.225.4300. It is unfortunate that these people have nothing better to do with their holiday than to scam the good folks out there. Two lumps of coal in their stockings for them!!!
