It’s 2:30 p.m. in Lodi, and the afternoon sun brings the temperature to a toasty 104 as officers of the Lodi Police Department’s SWAT Team wait to learn what their training exercise will consist of. The team runs a different exercise each month, with their superiors keeping the details a secret until the last possible minute to keep the officers on their toes.

With their gear loaded into the white equipment van, the team heads out to their first stop: the old General Mills office building on Turner Road. Officer Mark Werdon drives the Ballistics Armored Tactical Transport, affectionately called the BATTmobile, with some of the officers riding on the two benches in the back. The rest of the team rides in a patrol SUV, and their leader, Sgt. Kevin Kent, drives an unmarked sedan.
