Chief Investigator, New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, Division of Field Investigation


Hello, my name is Todd Putorti. I joined the New York Start Department of Motor Vehicles, Division of Field Investigation, in 2003, because I wanted to help ensure identity integrity and prevent fraud in a post-9/11 world. While in college I worked part-time as a cemetery groundskeeper. In January 2002, I had the honor to attend to the funeral of a 9/11 WTC victim. When the opportunity came to be hired as an investigator with the NYS DMV, I cherished the opportunity to work to protect the identity records and document issuance process to honor that victim and all those that lost their lives that fateful day. I’m so honored to be remembered in this Museum, because I am proud of my country, community, and the law enforcement family.
