WATSONVILLE — If 16-year-old Collin Travers has his way, he will one day be a Watsonville Police officer.

“This is my dream place to work,” Travers said.

Travers said he has wanted to be a police officer since he was 5.

“I want to be that person who puts the bad guys in jail and be there to help that person who needs it,” he said.

While such a goal might be several years off for the Harbor High School senior, he is well on his way to achieving it.

He has been a Watsonville Police cadet for the past three years, having achieved the rank of sergeant. He has also participated in several training sessions such as simulated building searches, car stops, simulated DUI arrests, active shooter situations and domestic violence incidents.

In addition, Travers placed first in his division late July during the San Diego County Law Enforcement Explorers Advisors Association annual Explorers Academy, which brings young police cadets from across the state to undergo an intense, weeklong training camp.
