Deputy Leo D'Amato
"Wow, Veronica, he totally wants to protect and serve you."
Claiming a past of delivering strip-o-grams, with the tearaway uniform to prove it (though yet to show it), Deputy Leo befriended Veronica. In return, she stole the Crime Stopper Hotline recording of the anonymous tip about Koontz from the evidence room. Afterwards, when Leo was suspended for the break-in, Veronica regretted using him.
Leo plays in a band, and naturally uses it to get girls. He likes to invite them to come and watch them play, which lets him see whether the girl is interested without the risk of rejection. He extended this invitation to Veronica, who took him up on it before he found out about her deception.
The next time she saw him, Veronica apologized and explained the situation regarding Lilly's murder. Initially, Leo was reluctant to forgive her. He even had a sketch artist render Veronica with horns. When Veronica admitted she had fallen for him, he relented, possibly because the visions of an 18-year-old Veronica were dancing in his head. Then, during the "Total Eclipse of the Heart" dance, he kissed her. Aww, how cute. Hopefully he knows his new not-quite-legal sweetie's dad has a gun.
When Veronica asked Leo to get her the tapes from Lilly's murder investigation, he complied in exchange for dinner. Too bad Veronica would have given him dinner and a movie. Dinner was awkward with the Kanes and Duncan's new girlfriend Meg sitting next to them, but neither Leo nor Veronica let that get in their way, and it likely won't be their last date.
