- About Police Partners
The Lodi Police Partners are a group of volunteers who assist
the Lodi Police Department with day-to-day duties. They serve
subpoenas, take down garage sale posters, check park bathrooms and
help direct traffic when there is an accident.
Currently, there are 82 volunteers. Most of them are retired
because Partners have to be able to work during the day.
What are the requirements? Partners must be 50 years or older,
have a clear criminal history, pass a bakground investigation and
have a California driver's license or identification card.
Every volunteer must serve for 16 hours each month, attend 40
hours of training and purchase a uniform at a cost of about
How can I join? The Partners will have their next round of
training classes starting the first Monday in February, so the
program will be accepting applications through mid-January. You can
pick up an application at the Lodi Police Department, 215 W. Elm
St. For more information, you can call the Partners' volunteer
office at the 333-6886.

During the past month, the Lodi Police Partners lost two of
their longtime volunteers who have helped make the program that
assists the Lodi Police Department a success.
On Sept. 8, Francis Jolley, who went by Frannie, died at the age
of 77. She was a Police Partner for almost 10 years. She worked
patrol frequently and did a lot of fingerprinting and
administration work in the Partners office.
