Flagler detective honored for protecting kids against abuse


PALM COAST, Fla. – A Flagler County detective has been honored for her work in protecting children and teenagers from sexual predators and abuse.

The Flagler County Sheriff's Office said Detective Elizabeth "annie" Conrad was honored Sunday at the Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast during the 8th annual KinderVision/The Greatest Save Celebrity Benefit.

Flagler County Sheriff James L. Manfire nominated the detective for the award.

"Just this year, Detective Conrad has been the lead investigator in 18 sex offense and four child pornography cases in Flagler County," Manfire said in a nomination letter submitted to KinderVIsion. "Without her experience and expertise, many of the cases would have gone unsolved. She is a tremendous asset to the Flagler County Sheriff's Office and the community we serve."

KinderVision/The Greatest Save was launched in 1991 in Southern California as a result of the kidnapping and murder of 7-year-old Leticia Hernandez. It's a national personal safety education program that works to protect children and teens from sexual exploitation and abduction.
