Some local kids celebrated the end of the school year Friday with a pizza party on the Pismo Beach Pier.

This was the 17th year the Pismo Beach Police Department has hosted “Pizza on the Pier.”

It’s a chance for the officers and the students to get to know each other and for the kids to check out some of the vehicles used by the police department.

“It’s important to reach out to our youth because it’s important for them to know we’re partners in their community. They’re the future. We’d like for them to know in times of need, we’re here for them,” said Pismo Beach PD Operations Commander Shawn Singleton.

Del’s Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant donated 45 extra-large pizzas for the event.
