Deputy Durland is a policeman who is also Sheriff Blubs' partner and right-hand man. He is shown to be very unintelligent and childlike, shown when Mabel comments that she does not even think he can read. Sheriff Blubs seems to find these qualities endearing, and refers to him as a "diamond in the rough". Instead of "doing their duties," he and Sheriff Blubs like to joke around (taking their shirts off and running around fire hydrants, etc.).
