Three police officers have been added to the Galt Police Department this year after the City Council added the positions to their payroll.

The new officers, sworn in last week, bring the force to 16 officers, four sergeants, two lieutenants and Police Chief Doug Matthews.

The council added two positions when it adopted its two-year budget last July and added a third position in February.

Brian Nino, Steve Dennis and Andrew Robison were sworn in on June 9, although Nino has been on the force since January.

Nino, 28, opted for a law enforcement career after being an asset manager for SaveMart stores. He was born in San Jose and graduated from the Ray Simon Criminal Justice Training Center at Modesto Junior College.

Dennis, 32, joined the Galt force May 9. He was previously a police officer in Crossett, Ark., and a deputy with the Dickey County Sheriff's Department, also in Arkansas. He was also a part-time police officer in North Dakota.

Dennis is a 1992 graduate of Napa High School, attended Community College of the Air Force, graduated from the North Dakota Peace Officer and Standards Training Academy in 1998 and completed a California recertification course in January at Napa Valley College.

He and his wife, Shelly, have two daughters.

Robison, 22, was born in Lodi and graduated from Tokay High School. He attended San Joaquin Delta College and graduated from the POST Academy at College of the Sequoias in Visalia last July. A Lodi resident, he is single and has no children. Robison also started at Galt police in May.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
