Operations Division - Patrol
The Patrol Division encompasses all the officers who patrol the City streets.
Operations Division - K-9 Unit
The DeLand Police K-9 unit is an enhanced support function for the Patrol Division. Their primary functions are to respond to alarm and prowler calls, conduct building and article searches, assist drug units with narcotic detection and the tracking of felony suspects. When K-9 officers are not responding to calls, they patrol the business and residential areas of the City in an effort to deter and detect break-ins.
The K-9 Unit has been frequently requested to perform demonstrations at schools and community functions. The comments received from the public time and time again reflect the positive manner in which the DeLand Police K-9's are received and the high level of confidence in their ability.
