Putnam County Sheriff's Department

Beware of Dishonest Contractors

With the arrival of spring, Sheriff McConville would like to remind residents to be cautious of unlicensed contractors soliciting work.

Homeowners can fall prey to phony contractors who do not complete agreed-upon work after receiving payment. Roofing, driveway sealing, and tree work are some examples. Residents should be cautious when paying in advance for any work, and if something or someone appears suspicious, they should call 9-1-1.
