Flagler County Sheriff’s Office Commemorates National Crime Victims’ Rights Week

Since his election in 2017, Sheriff Staly has made the protection of victims’ rights a major initiative for the FCSO.

BUNNELL, FL – Sheriff Rick Staly and the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) attended the Flagler County Board of County Commissioners Meeting where a proclamation was read acknowledging April 18-24 as National Crime Victims’ Rights Week.

Since his election in 2017, Sheriff Staly has made the protection of victims’ rights a major initiative for the FCSO. Part of this initiative included the implementation of ankle monitoring GPS systems. These devices are designed to empower and improve the safety of domestic violence victims, when offenders are ordered by the judge to wear them. Sheriff Staly also supported and endorsed the passage of “Marsy’s Law” which gave victims additional rights.

In 2018, the FCSO received Agency of The Year for its Domestic Violence Initiatives during National Crime Victims’ Rights Week and in 2020, FCSO received the “Leadership in Victim Services Award” for midsize agency by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP).

More recently, the FCSO showed tremendous care to a victim of domestic violence in Flagler County who had called for assistance when her long-time boyfriend made threats against her life. FCSO deputies intercepted the suspect after he drove through the night to confront her to make good on his threats. The FCSO victim advocates were made available to the victim during this time. This case, and cases like it, are great examples of how the FCSO works to put offenders in jail and support crime victims in Flagler County.
