    California dreaming with Travis

    California dreaming with Travis

    Travis grew up in the Valencia area of California, playing sports as a kid. He developed a desire to get into law enforcement while in high school, after doing a ride-a-long with his neighbor who was an officer for LAPD. After college, Travis got a job with Culver City PD. In his time there, he did patrol, special enforcement team, and then SWAT. He even rode around sometimes on a sweet e-bike (of which KD didn't find too impressive). Travis has been an of...

Obsessed

I’ve listened to every single episode within 2 weeks! As someone who grew up in and around this department, I love hearing the stories and the personal side to it. My favorite part is how much y’all stress, on almost every episode, the metal health side of it for the officers. And how it’s encouraged for the officers to find someone to talk to after a difficult call! Great job GPPD and Nate and KD!

Great Listen!

So glad my friend recommended this Podcast. I enjoyed listening to our local officers. It was interesting hearing about their personal lives, how they ended up in GP and about their role at the department. After listening to 4 of the podcast so far it sounds like GP Police Department is a great place to be and I love that they value family. Keep them coming Nate and KD!
