Today, we lost one of the best.
Senior Deputy Frank Scofield, 58, lost his life this morning when a vehicle failed to stop at the intersection of Tomoka Farms Road and Pioneer Trail and hit Scofield on his bicycle.
The Florida Highway Patrol is handling the crash investigation.
All of us who knew Frank will never forget him. He started his VCSO career in 1995 and became a legendary, widely respected veteran member of our Marine Unit.
Our hearts are with the family and friends of Senior Deputy Scofield. Please join us in saying a prayer for them today and honoring the memory of a great deputy and a great man.
There's so much love and respect for Frank Scofield shown here. But that's only part of it. All of Volusia County lost a friend today.
Frank Scofield personified the Volusia County Sheriff's Office as much as any single person ever could. We were lucky to know him and to be a part of his team. Just wish he was here tomorrow.
Thanks to all of you for your support of his family, friends and loved ones, from all of us at VCSO.
