Flagler County, FL – Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly swore in 3 local law enforcement officers in a gesture of unity and providing streamlined protection for Flagler County on Monday, March 20.
According to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO), the move gives the 3 law enforcement leaders countywide jurisdiction as sheriff’s deputies.
“It means we can provide more blanket law enforcement coverage and better communication between our agencies,” said Sheriff Staly. “This can only help us work more closely with them, and them with us, in protecting the citizens of Flagler County.”
Sheriff Staly administered the oath of office to the 3 men at the Sheriff’s Office in Bunnell. They include: Bunnell Police Chief Tom Foster; Flagler Beach Police Chief Matt Doughney; and FBPD Lt. Randy Doyle.
“By allowing us to join the FCSO, this means we can increase the level of cooperation among our agencies,” Chief Doughney said. “It’s a win-win.”
Chief Foster, who oversees the Bunnell Police Department, agreed. “It’s great to have a sheriff we can work closely with, to benefit all the residents of Flagler County.”
