Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staly has just been appointed to Florida’s Private Investigation, Recovery and Security Advisory Council, (PIRSAC), by Florida Agriculture Commissioner Wilton Simpson. Sheriff Staly will be filling the law enforcement position on the Board. Commissioner Wilton Simpson was elected to serve as one of the four Florida Cabinet Members in 2022.
Sheriff Staly has served on the PIRSAC in the past, when he and his wife owned a security company, which was based in Palm Coast, representing small security companies.
“It’s an honor to be appointed by Commissioner Simpson and to work with PIRSAC,” said Sheriff Staly. “As Sheriff, I have the unique perspective of being the law enforcement representative to PIRSAC but since I previously owned a security company that was regulated by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, I also understand the needs of the private security, recovery and the private investigative industry.”
This is a volunteer council and meets four times a year to advise and make recommendations to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) regarding the regulation of private investigative, recovery and repossession, as well as private security industries in Florida. The Council has 11 positions which are appointed by the Commissioner of Agriculture to serve a four-year term. Sheriff Staly’s term on the council will expire on June 30th, 2027.
