From its beginnings as a group home in rural Cedar Rapids nearly 40 years ago, Four Oaks has grown to become one of the state’s largest agencies devoted to child welfare, juvenile justice and behavioral health.
On 25 April 2013, the Iowa City Police Department welcomed Travis Graves as the newest officer to join the department. Travis served as a youth counselor at Four Oaks in Cedar Rapids.
When counseling young people, one gains experience and a hopeful outlook that fosters a belief in the potential of our youth.
Travis has an education and background that is diverse. He has an Associate’s Degree in Parks and Natural Resources from Kirkwood Community College, as well as a Bachelor of Science Degree from Iowa State University in Animal Ecology. He has also worked for the Iowa Department of Natural Resources as a seasonal patrol officer since May of 2010.
