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."
