K-9 Unit

The Selma Police Department K-9 unit consists of a supervisor, Sergeant Gilbert Cantu and the following members:

  • Officer Johnnie Cerda and K-9 "Dodger".

  • Officer Derek Gagnon and K-9 "Zeus".

  • Officer Shane Frandsen and K-9 "Vanda".

  • Officer Matt Hughes and K-9 "Ringo".

Recently Selma PD added a new narcotics K-9 to the unit, Officer Andrew Guzman and K-9 "Brook" pictured below.

    Selma PD is the only rural department in Fresno County to have a four team K9 unit and a narcotic detection K9, allowing them to be available to nearly all shifts.  The unit is also available to assist allied agencies when the need arises.

    Properly used, the Police Service Dogs are the most effective and diverse tool known to police work.  The K9 unit has a long history or successful community service and officer protection.  The K9 unit remains committed to providing the citizens of Selma with a high level of service.

If you have questions or comments about our K-9 program, contact Sgt. Tim Cannon K9 Coordinator (559) 891-2283 or TimC@cityofselma.com
