Sheriff Waters Announces New Staff Appointments
February 02, 2023
Earlier this week, Sheriff T.K. Waters announced several personnel changes that will occur on his staff. 
Effective Saturday, March 4, 2023, the following staff appointments will become effective at the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office:
  • Shawn Coarsey, currently serving as Director of Investigations and Homeland Security, will be appointed to Undersheriff;
  • Mark Romano, currently serving as Chief of Investigations, will be appointed to Director of Investigations and Homeland Security;
  • Alan Parker, currently serving as Assistant Chief of the Information Systems Management Section, will be appointed to Chief of Investigations;
  • Police Lieutenant Eric Redgate will be appointed to Assistant Chief of the Information Systems Management Section. 
The above-detailed staff appointments result from the planned retirement of Undersheriff Nick Burgos on Friday, March 3, 2023. 

Undersheriff Burgos will step down from the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office after 26 years of dedicated service to this community.  He began his career as a patrolman, and through his long and decorated career, achieved every rank in the agency absent Sheriff. 

"Undersheriff Burgos’ keen mind and steady judgment has guided multiple administrations during his tenure with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office.  While Undersheriff Burgos will be sorely missed in the day-to-day operations of this agency, we all wish him the best for his next chapter," said Sheriff Waters.
Effective Tuesday, January 31, 2023, Corrections Lieutenant Nicholas Bliss was appointed to Assistant Chief of the Community Transition Center Section.

"Please join me in congratulating each of these agency members on their staff appointments," said Sheriff Waters.
