PUTNAM COUNTY, N.Y. -- Sheriff-Elect Robert Langley has announced his new captains for the Putnam County Sheriff's Office, including the first female captain in county history.

“I am very happy that we have assembled a command team with such deep and varied experience,” said Langley. “This is an incredible team that will elevate professionalism, raise standards, improve public safety, and returns integrity to the department. The Putnam County Sheriff’s Office will be in good hands.”

Jennings, who will be captain of the bureau of criminal investigation, currently serves as a special agent with the FBI in their White Plains office. Cheverko, who will be captain of the Putnam County Jail, currently serves as Westchester County Commissioner of Correction.

Ortolano, who will be captain of the civil lawyer, worked in the Putnam County District Attorney's Office. Swarm, who will be captain of the road patrol, previously was a lieutenant in the NYPD. Babcock, who will be captain of communications, previously worked in the Putnam County Sheriff's Department for 23 years.
