Ruso joins the DeLand PD

We'd like to introduce the community to one of our newest members of the DeLand Police Department.

Ruso, a one-and-a-half-year-old Belgian Malinois, is the DeLand Police Department's newest K-9 officer to join the force. His partner will be Joey Mulero, who has been with the DeLand Police Department for nearly five years.

Ruso is the third K-9 officer for the police department. Lancelot, a 21-month-old Yellow Labrador, and Daro, a 5-year-old German Shepherd, are the other officers in the unit.
