“If you attack a Deputy Sheriff you are going to still go to jail but with more charges,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “These are the types of unknowns that law enforcement deals with on a daily basis. You never know how someone will respond to an encounter with law enforcement and our deputies must be prepared for anything. Deputies did a great job of reading his attitude and responding as quickly and safely as possible while protecting themselves and not injuring the suspect.”
“We appreciate Vested Interest in K9s for providing this lifesaving vest for K-9 Axle,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “This gives protection to K-9 Axle in the event of a criminal act and gives peace of mind to his handler, Deputy Beausoleil. The safety of our K-9 officers is extremely important and we are grateful for this generous donation.”
“Sometimes swatting calls are made to retaliate against someone for whatever reason and sometimes they are completely random. We have seen both recently in Palm Coast,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Unfortunately the types of calls are so serious that a large police response is required and there is no way for deputies or first responders to know that the call is fake until an investigation is completed. In the meantime, resources are diverted from other calls for service while they investigate a call that turns out to be a prank. It’s not funny and it is illegal and dangerous.”
“Impaired and distracted driving is not an issue that is unique to Flagler County. Unfortunately, people from all over the country make the decision to drive impaired every day,” Sheriff Staly said. “But what is unique is that here in Flagler County we are working to educate and engage the public in every way we can on the dangers of impaired and distracted driving before an accident or arrest occurs. I hope the FCSO Impaired Driving Simulator and the visual messaging on the trailer will encourage residents to drive sober and free from distractions and texting.”

“This was a very dangerous situation for not only the people inside the vehicle but for the other motorists on the roadway,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “This drunk attacked an innocent driver and put numerous lives in danger. These rider-share services can quickly become dangerous and drivers should be cautious of who they let in their vehicle. Thankfully the video recording device captured the entire incident and he went to jail.”
