San Diego Self Storage Funds Police Service Dog for the San Diego Police Department K9 Unit


The San Diego Police Department K9 Unit has been recognized as one of the best canine teams in the country. This unit patrols all San Diego's streets which means these K9's are working 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week to ensure the safety of our local neighborhoods.

In 2018 San Diego Self Storage donated $12,500 to the San Diego Police Foundation which purchased Tauras (Taras), a police service dog. 

With much anticipation, on September 21, 2020 Taras officially began the K9 academy. Taras graduated from the K9 academy on November 5, 2020 with high praise! On graduation day, Taras and his handler Sergeant Corey Stasch were asked by the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department to help track a murder suspect in Ramona. “He did an awesome job and led investigators to an area where they believe the suspect got into a vehicle after running from the scene. Video surveillance was then utilized to help with the investigation. Taras searched for over an hour and a half (with breaks) and was able to track a homicide suspect on his first day” according to Lieutenant Ricky Radasa. The SDPD K9 Unit could not be more thrilled about Taras’ career as a police service dog.

We will share updates as we receive them. We wish to thank the San Diego Police Foundation for allowing San Diego Self Storage to be a part of his journey. We are so proud to support a program which benefits our police force, communities and families. 

Here is a video featuring Taras so that you can meet him virtually and see him in action! San Diego Self Storage takes great pride in knowing what an important role Taras will have in creating a safer San Diego.
