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

K9 Flash Goes to Camp

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. The kids were treated to a “Talk to a Hometown Hero,” and Flash stole the show! The trip for city kids was sponsored by the Boy Scouts of America. 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.
