Scott Bond was sworn in as Lodi's newest police officer on Thursday, bringing more change to a department that saw two officers retire earlier this week.

"It feels great," said Bond, who grew up in Stockton and graduated from Lincoln High School in 2001. "It takes a little while to hit you at first. It's such a long process between all the background checks, oral board interviews, psychological tests; it's such a long process. But to get to this point feels really good."

    And here is thought the Police Department had been taking about layoffs for many months because they don't have funds for this and that and especially hiring officers! I guess I either heard that wrong, or they (Police) flat out lied!

    I guess the city of Lodi came into some money, or the Lodi Police department administrators found some extra cash they didn't know they had!

    Who do you think you are kidding with all this rubbish?

    "We have very high standards as we recruit people to work here," Helms told Bond.

    Yeah until you make your first mistake as a police officer, then we do what ever we can to ensure we are not responsible or held liable. Because its always someone else's fault!

    Who do you think you're kidding...
