Putnam County to Participate in Statewide STOP-DWI Thanksgiving Crackdown Enforcement Effort

–Impaired Driving Crackdown runs November 27, 2019-December 1, 2019–

Putnam County Sheriff Robert L. Langley, Jr., Town of Carmel Police Department Chief Michael Cazzari and Kent Police Department Chief Kevin Owens announced today that their departments will participate in a special enforcement effort to crackdown on impaired driving.


This Thanksgiving weekend, millions will hit the roads eager to spend time with family and friends. It’s one of the busiest travel times of the year, and unfortunately more people on the roadways means the potential for more vehicle crashes. In a combined effort to stop impaired driving, prevent injuries and save lives law enforcement officers across New York State will take to the roads. The statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown efforts start on November 27, 2019 and will end on December 1, 2019.

Research shows that high-visibility enforcement can reduce impaired driving fatalities by as much as 20 percent. Sobriety checkpoints play a key part in raising awareness about the problem. New York State Police, County Sheriff and municipal law enforcement agencies across the state will be out in force.

The STOP-DWI Thanksgiving Weekend Crackdown is one of many statewide enforcement initiatives promoted by STOP-DWI NY and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee. Throughout the remainder of the year the Statewide STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign will also target the national Holiday Season in December.

While STOP-DWI efforts across New York have led to significant reductions in the numbers of alcohol and drug related fatalities, still too many lives are being lost because of crashes caused by drunk or impaired drivers. Highly visible, highly publicized efforts like the STOP-DWI Crackdown Campaign aim to further reduce the incidence of drunk and impaired driving.

Putnam County Domestic Violence and Sexual Violence Task Force

Yesterday evening, Sheriff Langley along with Captain Ortolano and Chief of Staff McKinney joined Ann Ellsworth of the @pnwwrc, DA Tendy, the NY State Police, @cacofputnamcountyny, the County Probation Department and the Kent, Carmel, Cold Spring and Brewster Police Departments to launch the Putnam Northern Westchester Women’s Resource Center’s latest initiative - the formation of the Putnam County Domestic Violence and Sexual Violence Task Force.

The purpose of the task force will be to inform and make the public aware of domestic and sexual violence, human trafficking and the problems and tragedies that often result from them. The goal is to empower individuals to seek help for themselves or others whom they feel may be in need of assistance.

The Task Force agencies will share statistics, aggregate data and perform educational awareness and training in the community including high schools, social and other organizations within the community who may have clients in need of services. There is help. For you, a family member, a friend. Please reach out. For further information, contact the Putnam County Sheriff’s Department at 845-225-4300, the Putnam Northern Westchester Women’s Center at 845-628-9284 or the Putnam County District Attorney at 845-808-1050.
