My Cop Program

​About the Program​

The "My Cop" program focuses on a full service personalized policing method where the same officer is assigned to a specific area working in a proactive partnership with citizens to identify and solve problems in a non-traditional manner. The program assigns each officer to a specific zone within the city.  The officer assigned will be responsible for the zone.  This does not mean that the officer handles all calls for service in this zone, but instead is a contact person for long term issues in the specific zone.  
The "My Cop" program assists in managing the quality of life for the residents and businesses within the City of Pismo Beach.  It is a way to address concerns before they escalate into major problems.  "My Cop" allows the officers to take ownership of their assigned zone and reach out to the residents and businesses to help them solve some of the issues that they have within their residing area.

Register for the My Cop Program

Begin a two way communication between you and the officer assigned to your zone by registering for the "My Cop" program. Registering will allow you to contact your neighborhood officer and periodically receive notices, push notifications and/or emails from your officer keeping you up to date with any news happening within your zone.  


Download the free Pismo Beach Police Department app from your device's app store. The Pismo Beach Police Department app allows quick access to the police information that concerns you most including press releases, contacts directory, and links to report an issue, as well as links to parking information and City services.
You can click the following link to be directed to app store links to download the app.


Once you have downloaded the PBPD app, go to the "My Cop" icon within the app and follow the prompts to register your Pismo Beach address. The app will then find your zone and link you to information about that zone including current crime statistics, notifications, and officer information so that you can contact your "My Cop" officer directly if needed.

You can also email to request enrollment in the "My Cop" program if you wish to bypass the app platform.
