Today the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office and Correctional Facility Award Presentation recognized heroes in the department, community and those who have worked 20, 25 and even 30 years with the Department.
After being led in the Pledge of Allegiance by Putnam Valley Town Supervisor Sam Olivieri, Sheriff Langley commenced the ceremony. Legislators Ginny Nacerino and Paul Jonke and Assemblyman Kevin Byrne helped to present certificates from their offices. Lieutenant McManus, Captains Ortolano, Cheverko and Jennings greeted the recipients.
Awards for Life Saving went to Deputy John Bradley, PCSO Cadet Zachary Kuttruf, his parents Jennifer and Bruce Kuttruf, and Jonathan Cummings for the ATV rescue on Lake Oscawana. Zachary also received a beautiful custom made stand by Dennis Coffey to display his set of challenge coins we know will grow quickly with all his Boy Scout activities. Deputies Christopher Irwin and Thomas Varbero also received awards for saving the life of an unresponsive woman in respiratory distress.
Commendation awards went to again Deputy Christopher Irwin as well as Deputies Shane Rossiter and Brian Neary, Dispatchers Barbara Dietz and Donna Doyle. The PCSO is blessed to have such conscientious and dedicated team members.
