A Message From the Chief on COVID-19

As you know, the COVID-19 Coronavirus has required us to change the way we interact with each other. As a country, we’ve been told to practice social distancing, wash our hands, and clean areas that we touch with disinfectant.  A Police interaction is no different.


The Putnam Police Department strives to provide a full-service police department, offering services that many agencies do not in order to serve our residents better. Due to the COVID-19, some of our services and common practices will temporarily be curtailed or eliminated. 


I’d like to thank you for your continued patience and understanding. These are different times, as we all band together to try to slow the spread of this virus. Our practices may temporarily change, but we will do everything we can to continue to offer our best service to you. Above all, if you have an active emergency, we will respond to you and help. 

 - Chief Chris Ferace
