DPD Youth Cadets and Community Engagement Unit Celebrate at the Juneteenth Festival

Members of the DeLand Police Department Youth Cadet and Community Engagement celebrated with the community at the Juneteenth festival! Juneteenth is a day that marks when enslaved African-Americans were told of their freedom and that the Civil War was over. It was officially recognized as a federal holiday in 2021.

This past Saturday, members of the DeLand Police Department Community Engagement Unit and Youth Cadet members attended the annual City of DeLand Juneteenth festival held at Earl Brown Park. Thank you to our residents and visitors that stopped by our tent and met with our Youth Cadet members. It was a fun event and our members look forward to next year!
