They raised $3,500 for local kids with cancer.

Wow, our officers truly amaze us every day! 

They raised $3,500 for local kids with cancer. The Watsonville Police Officers’ Association presented a check to Jacob’s Heart during their annual Kidrageous Carnival at the city plaza this past weekend(09/29/19). 

Dozens of our officers donated $100 to grow their beards for National Childhood Cancer Awareness month, which is in September.  During that time, we suspend our “facial hair” policy in order to support this non-profit organization that helps local families get through the most difficult times of their lives. 

Watsonville Police Sergeant Juan Trujillo was such a great sport participating in “Dunk a Cop,” which brought in another $1,178. WATCH HERE:

Since 2014, WPD Officers have raised more than $16,000 for Jacob’s Heart! 


¡Guau, nuestros oficiales realmente nos asombran todos los días!

Recaudaron $3.500 para niños de la Costa Central con cáncer. La Asociación de Oficiales de la Policía de Watsonville presentó un cheque a la organización Jacob’s Heart durante su Carnaval Anual de Kidrageous en la plaza de la ciudad este pasado fin de semana (09/29/19). 

Docenas de nuestros oficiales donaron $100 para dejarse crecer la barba durante el Mes Nacional de Concientización del Cáncer Infantil, que es en septiembre. Durante ese tiempo, suspendemos nuestra política de “vello facial” para apoyar a esta organización sin fines de lucro que ayuda a familias a superar los momentos más difíciles de sus vidas.
