A neon sign paid for with drug-seized assets, flashing "vacancy," was unveiled Thursday and further emphasizes that rooms are available for criminals at the Flagler County Detention Facility.
"The purpose of the signs is crime prevention," Staly said. "When you are arrested, we provide the minimum accommodations as required by law. Once an offender 'checks-in,' they lose their basic freedoms. They don't decide what to eat, wear, or do with their day."
