Our Pacific View Mall Storefront volunteers are a valuable asset to both our officers and public. The storefront volunteers can be the first point of contact for civilians wanting to contact the Ventura Police Department for a variety of reasons including requests for reports, community concerns or information. Additionally, the storefront serves as break area for officers on duty or a safe location to meet with a civilian requesting assistance. Lastly, our storefront sells VPD K9 Unit merchandise where the proceeds directly benefit our K9 team. Our K9 Unit program is supported based on community donations, event fundraising and merchandise. See our K9 Unit page for further information on this crime fighting team!
All Storefront Volunteers assist in the sale of VPD K9 merchandise to raise money for our K9 unit.
The Ventura Police Department K9 Unit is a non-profit tax exempt public charity organization, through the assistance of the National Police Dog Foundation, recognized under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All donations are tax deductible. (Tax ID# 77-0496014)
Merchandise can also be purchased from our Pacific View Mall K9 Storefront at 3301 E. Main St. Ventura Ca 93003 (near Target)
