Police Assistance Requested on Homicide

Members of The DeLand Police Department are proud to be a part of the DeLand community. We strive to work in partnership with the community to make DeLand a safer place to live and visit. 

Unfortunately there are times when partnerships are tested and now is one of those times. Over the past several weeks, both in the city and county area there have been multiple instances where firearms have been used to commit crimes. The violence has escalated as to where young people are losing their lives. We have to work together to stop the violence within our own community. Any information you provide may help solve a crime and bring those responsible to justice.

Provided below is a list of phone numbers and web sites where anyone can call and provide information.
