Putnam County Mourning Loss of Sheriffs’ Investigator Mark Gilmore

NY Sheriffs Association

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and colleagues of Putnam County Sheriff’s Investigator Mark Gilmore, who died suddenly on Wednesday while off duty.

Sr. Inv. Gilmore served the Sheriff’s Office over 28 years as a correction officer, deputy sheriff, sergeant and, most recently, as the Senior Investigator in charge of the Narcotics Enforcement Unit. He was a member of the Emergency Response Team and was a motorcycle officer, and was the recipient of several Letters of Commendation and Unit Citations during his career. 

Putnam County Sheriff Don Smith said: “Mark was a consummate professional…As head of the Narcotics Unit, Mark worked hard every day at trying to keep dangerous drugs away from our most precious resources—our children and young adults.”

The photograph of Sr. Inv. Gilmore was taken at his graduation from the FBI National Academy in 2009.
