Flagler County, FL – A Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) Detective has received the 2017 Greatest Save Law Enforcement Award from KinderVison for his work to prevent crimes against children.
On Monday, September 25, Detective George Hristakopoulos was honored with the award for his contributions to a case earlier this year. Hristakopoulos was nominated by Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly after uncovering a case concerning the sexual relationship between a 51-year-old and a sixteen-year-old female neighbor in March 2017.
“Through investigative techniques and determination to seek justice for the juvenile victim, Detective Hristakopoulos was able to arrest the suspect, who is currently awaiting trial,” said Sheriff Staly. “If not for the efforts of Detective Hristakopoulos, this suspect would have had additional opportunities to inflict harm or prey on other potential juvenile victims within our community.”
