Putnam County Sheriff Donald B. Smith announces that he has named Paul Boscia as the new Undersheriff of the Putnam County Sheriff’s Office.
Boscia’s appointment fills a vacancy in the position following the untimely death on Nov. 15, 2016 of the previous long-time Undersheriff, Peter Convery.
Boscia’s official appointment as Undersheriff will commence on Feb. 6 and is effective through the remainder of Smith’s current elected term of office, which runs through Dec. 31, 2017.

In addition to his long police service, Boscia has served his country in the Air Force, first serving as an active member for ten years before joining the Sheriff’s Office and then continuing as a member of the Air Force Reserve until retiring in 2006 at the rank of Lieutenant Colonel.
Boscia holds a bachelor’s degree from Manhattan College and is a graduate of the FBI National Academy. He and his wife, Regina, reside in Putnam County, where they have raised their four children.
“The death of Undersheriff Peter Convery left a big hole in our hearts and it also left big shoes to fill in leading the men and women of the Sheriff’s Office and in serving our citizens,” said Smith in the announcement. “I am grateful to Paul Boscia and to his wife, Regina, for temporarily putting their retirement plans on hold and for answering the call to duty for the people of Putnam County.
Following the Sheriff’s announcement, Boscia said that he is “honored by the Sheriff’s appointment” and that he is “privileged to serve as his Undersheriff.” Boscia went on to express confidence that his long experience in the Sheriff’s Office will enable him to serve the County well in his new role: “The Sheriff is an outstanding leader and I am prepared, together with the very capable command staff of the Sheriff’s Office, to assist him in fulfilling our mission to serve and protect the community with professionalism and dedication.”
