In 2011, the Lodi Police Department was developing strategies that they hoped would combat the sharp rise in gang violence within the city. One of those strategies was Dale Miller.

Lodi Police Chief Mark Helms hired Miller, who spent nearly 30 years as a patrol officer and sergeant with the department, as the department’s crime analyst. His job was to study crimes, identify trends and provide officers with enough information to become proactive instead of reactive.

    How about your street snitches that are paid cash, drugs or get out of jail free cards for ratting on their friends and neighbors, many times with false or undocumented evidence or info, just to get those "favors".? Your computer data bank gives you all that info at the touch of a button. So why does law enforcement tend to skew the real figures? I'd like to see the stats on the dui/license checkpoints and the names of those merely cited or arrested for minor traffic violations to compare how LPD's stats target minorities cited for misdemeanor traffic violations as opposed to other law enforcement agencies in the US. Those tow/impound arrests/citations can amount to well over $3000 in towing and impound fees to those migrant workers who have a Mexican drivers' license, but no US license. Now that California's new immigration laws allow those documented workers to have a CA drivers license, the checkpoints are going to have to find another lame reason to stop vehicles at these traps to keep the income flowing into city coffers and tow owner/impound lots. All six lucky ones? How much do they pay to participate and why only the six big boys of the Lodi towing scene.?
