IN CASE OF EMERGENCY
K9 Demo at PCV
The Pismo Beach Police Department’s K9 team put on a demonstration to an impromptu audience at Pismo Coast Village RV Resort on Thursday, July 16th. K9 officer Trevor Blevins and his dog Cannix performed various apprehension techniques utilizing Officer Chris Siglin clad in a bite suit for protection. The crowd saw how versatile Cannix is trained to be. One minute the dog was dragging Officer Siglin out of a hiding place and the next Cannix was receiving a gentle pat on the head. The K9 program is in its fifth year for the PD and is entirely donation funded.
