The K-9 team of K9 Handler Officer Trevor Blevins and K9 Cannix have been serving the Pismo Beach Police Department since 2009. During this time the team has been utilized for suspect searches and apprehensions, narcotic searches, building searches and public demonstrations. They assist neighboring police agencies with these same services as well. The K9 team received specialized hard surface tracking training to allow for the most optimal performance of the team.
K9 Cannix obtained a ballistic vest in 2012 from a private donor.
Since the K9 program is funded solely by private donations from the community, fundraising is vital to keep this program going. Donations of any amount are appreciated. Checks can be made payable to the City of Pismo Beach and mailed to 1000 Bello St., Pismo Beach, CA 93449, Attn: K9 Program. K9 supporter t-shirts and other logo items are available for sale at the police department.
For more information about the K9 program or fundraising efforts, please contact Commander Shawn Singleton at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the PD at (805) 773-2208.
