Bike Week 2024 brought roughly 300,000 visitors to Flagler and Volusia Counties. During the 10-day event, which began Friday, March 1 and concluded Sunday, March 10, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) and Communications Center saw one of their busiest seasons yet.

The FCSO Communications Center handled a total of 7,436 calls. Of that number, 1,439 were 9-1-1 calls and 6,000 were non-emergency.

Deputies responded to 3,214 calls for service and conducted 717 traffic stops. They also responded to a total of 93 crashes, which included 49 with injury, 30 without, and 14 hit and runs.

Also, during Bike Week 2024, deputies made 85 arrests, 42 of which were felonies.

“Our Communications Center alone handled thousands of calls during this 10-day period, with our deputies responding to 10 times as many calls as they typically see over a weekend. It was a monumental undertaking, but our team handled the task with professionalism and dedication,” said Sheriff Rick Staly. “While, sadly, we had one traffic fatality it was not Bike Week related.”
