On Monday, the City of DeLand honored Dr. Caesar DePaço for his generous contributions to the police department.
Earlier this year, one of our canine officers, Daro, was entered into a contest to receive a Kevlar vest to provide protection while on duty. When Dr. DePaço heard of the contest, he offered to cover the cost of the vest.
Additionally, he has pledged to cover the cost of two additional K-9s to join the force. The police department recently welcome Lancelot, a yellow Labrador, as a part of the team and we will selecting another dog to join the team soon.
