Welcome to the virtual home of the Pismo Beach Police Department. I consider myself to be extremely fortunate to serve as Chief of Police of such a fine public safety organization. Our staff is highly competent, enthusiastic, and committed to providing our community with the highest levels of police services.
We see our role in the community as not only providing exceptional service to our local residents, but also working hard to meet the needs of the thousands of visitors that come enjoy our beaches and amenities throughout the year. We practice a unique form of ‘tourism-oriented policing’ which enhances our community’s reputation as a fun, family-oriented vacation destination enjoyed in a safe and peaceful environment. Our residents and guests should feel a strong sense of safety in all parts of town any time of the day or night. Community safety is one aspect of what brings generations of families back to Pismo Beach year after year.
To demonstrate our commitment to providing our community the highest standards of law enforcement services, the Pismo Beach Police Department possesses national law enforcement accreditation
through the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA)
. This is an on-going process, with re-accreditation taking place every three years. The Pismo Beach Police Department is extremely proud to retain this distinguished honor.
We pledge to make the quality of service we provide to our community second to none. We’d like to hear from you if you have comments or suggestions. Please feel free to contact me at (805) 773-7028. Thanks for visiting our site, and please be sure to come back soon.
