Bunnell, FL - The Flagler Sheriff’s Employee Assistance Trust (F.S.E.A.T.) has established a GoFundMe account to support Detention Deputy Paul Luciano’s family in his line-of-duty death from complications of COVID- 19. Donations made through this account are tax-deductible as F.S.E.A.T. is an authorized charity under IRS regulations.
According to Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly, Detention Deputy Paul Luciano is the first Detention Deputy Sheriff to die in the line-of-duty in the history of the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO). Deputy Luciano had been hospitalized while battling COVID-19, which he likely contracted while serving in the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. In a recent hospital call with Sheriff
Staly, Paul said he would "keep fighting, but it was in God’s hands.” Sadly, after weeks of fighting a long and hard battle, Paul lost his battle with COVID-19.
“The community and agencies around the country have been asking how they could help the family so I asked FSEAT to set up a GoFundMe account,” said Sheriff Staly. “He has a son in Hawaii that needs to get home and there are other unexpected expenses so I am asking the community to help and support our fallen hero.”
