Flagler County, FL - Flagler County's Sheriff-elect held a press conference on Thursday afternoon where he announced his plans for reorganizing the Sheriff's Office. He also introduced his Executive Staff team.
The goal of Rick Staly's reorganization is to get the agency ready to serve on day 1. "Under my administration we will focus on the quality of life issues in our neighborhoods, youth services, crime prevention, and domestic homeland security - including criminals that prey on our residents in jail," said Staly in a post press conference interview with WNDB.
"Over the next few months we'll impliment guardianship community policing by creating 3 service districts," he added. The 3 patrol districts will be split between the Barrier Island, Palm Coast, and the West Side of the county. The goal here is to cater services for the unique needs of each area.
Staly also made a few staff announcements during the press conference. The Community Policing Division will be run by Division Chief Paul Bovino. He's been with the agency for about 21 years. Division Chief Steve Cole will run the Court and Detention Services Division. He's been with FCSO for about 23 years. Division Chief Mark Strobridge will run the Organizational Services Division. He's a retired Division Chief from the Orange County Sheriff's Office. Division Chief Rick Ramirez will be in charge of the Investigative Services Division for all criminal investigations, youth services, and homeland security.
