"The SDPD K9 Unit works throughout the entire city benefiting all our communities."— San Diego Police Foundation

K9 Program. A police officer’s best friend.

Did you know SDPD K9 Unit has been recognized as one of the best teams in the country? That’s worth supporting with a donation to the K9 Unit through the San Diego Police Foundation. Your donation will be used to purchase training equipment that allows new dogs to walk in the footsteps of our retiring canine crime-fighters.

The Canine Unit is called in instances when either a dangerous call is in progress, such as a burglary, robbery, or vehicle pursuit.  The dogs are able to clear areas before officers approach on foot and perform area, canyon, or building searches for fleeing and hidden suspects.

SDPD’s K9 Unit also patrols San Diego’s streets!  They are working 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week to support SDPD’s patrol and answer calls.  Since they are not designated to a specific area or division, they work throughout the entire city benefiting all our communities.

Watch our Safety For All – SDPD K9 Unit video to learn more about this program.

Join us for the K9 Soirée, “Moonlight Masquerade: a night in Venice,” on October 29, 2022.
