Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly was re-appointed as a commissioner for the Florida Commission on Law Enforcement Accreditation on Jan. 30. He has served as a commissioner since 2018.
“I am honored that I was re-appointed to the commission by the Florida Sheriff's Association President, Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri, to serve another term as a Commissioner," Staly said. “Being re-appointed allows me the opportunity to ensure accredited Florida law enforcement agencies deliver law enforcement services at the highest standards in professional policing. I also have an
opportunity to hear about unique programs other agencies are using and see if they would work in Flagler County."
The commissioners meet three times per year to oversee the accreditation program and to officially accredit agencies that have passed the rigorous review process and ensure accredited agencies remain in full compliance. An accreditation program has long been recognized as a means of maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. Accreditation is the certification by an independent reviewing authority that an agency has met specific requirements and standards.
The Flagler County Sheriff’s Office maintains accreditation on the 911 Communications Center, Law Enforcement Services, Ethics and Integrity as well as the Flagler County Jail, which was accredited for the first time in FCSO history in October 2018.
