Palm Coast, FL - For the first time in 40 years, the Flagler County Sheriff's Office will have a permanent district office in Palm Coast.
Flagler Sheriff Rick Staly was among other city and law enforcement officials as the ribbon was cut for the new FCSO District 2 office.
"Until this point, the sheriff's office and the Palm Coast office has been a nomad, moving every few years," said Sheriff Staly. "Today, we now have a permanent home in Palm Coast."
The new home for FCSO in Palm Coast, which sits on Palm Harbor Village Way off of Old Kings Road and Palm Coast Parkway, used to be the site of a former Wachovia bank.
It even kept some old features from the former bank branch, including its teller windows at the front, office space, and its vault, which now serves as the evidence room for the new district office.
The new office also gives deputies and staff of FCSO a chance to have another in-person point of contact with the residents of Palm Coast. Deputies additionally have the chance to file reports, process evidence, and meet with residents who walk up to the office.
