It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that Sheriff Rick Staly and the men and women of the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) announce the line-of-duty death of Detention Deputy Sheriff Paul Luciano, who succumbed to complications of Covid-19 on August 26, 2021.

Deputy Luciano was 60-years-old and started his law enforcement career in 1996 with the Bunnell

Police Department. He later joined the Department of Corrections in Volusia County before joining FCSO in 2019, where he served as a Detention Deputy Sheriff at the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility. Deputy Luciano is survived by his wife, Carrie Luciano and their children.

“Deputy Luciano is a hero and this has devastated our team,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “I’m asking the community to keep his family and the men and women of the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office in their prayers as we mourn the loss of one of our own. Deputy Luciano will be greatly missed by his brothers and sister of the FCSO.”

At this time there is no information available on funeral arrangements. Sheriff Staly will update the community as information becomes available.
