A Special Message from Sheriff Rick Staly


Dear Flagler County Residents and Voters,

In 2015, you asked me to run for Sheriff and in 2016, you elected me to serve as your Sheriff and restore community trust in your Sheriff’s Office. When you elected me, I promised to restore the Sheriff’s Office to a professional, well-respected law enforcement Agency that you could be proud of; to reduce crime and drugs; to focus on youthful offenders; and, to offer programs at the county jail that would allow inmates to become productive members of our community.

I made these promises to you in 2016 and I delivered!

Today, your Sheriff’s Office is a modern, award-winning law enforcement Agency recognized as a leader in professional law enforcement.

In partnership with you and the community – along with an amazing dedicated team serving you every day – we have reduced crime by 54% despite being the 3rd fastest growing county in Florida.

The Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility is now an accredited and award-winning jail. Inmate programs offer job skills, mental health and addiction treatment so that inmates have the opportunity to be productive citizens when released.

Our Law Enforcement Division now has modern and updated equipment and state-of-the-art technology to serve you efficiently and effectively catch criminals that prey on our community and put them in jail where they belong!

Our drug enforcement dismantled a drug trafficking organization that took us all the way to a Mexican Cartel. We have seized millions of dollars in illegal narcotics and seized enough fentanyl to potentially kill hundreds of thousands of people. And, because we investigate every overdose death as a homicide, a number of poison peddlers are in state prison for selling the fatal dose. Neighborhood drug houses are now closed for business.

In 2020, you overwhelmingly voted to keep me your Sheriff.  I am grateful to you and for the opportunity to continue to serve you and Flagler County.

In 2024, I ask you to keep me your Sheriff so I can continue to deliver a safer community for you, your family and our businesses.

Thank you for your continued support and your endorsement of my vision for a safer community and a professional Sheriff’s Office dedicated to serving and protecting you.

Best regards,

Rick Staly
