Thursday at Daytona Beach Police’s COMPSTAT meeting, we were visited by someone who is a friend to all law enforcement. His name is César DePaço and he is the consul of Portugal in Florida.

Consul DePaço is also a businessman and philanthropist and he has donated over 60, K-9 officers to various police departments over the years, as well as equipment and money.

Now he is donating two K-9 officers to Daytona Beach Police and we are extremely grateful to Consul DePaço for his gift and his visit Thursday.
