As part of a comprehensive plan to reduce gang violence in Lodi, the city will be hiring two part-time youth outreach workers who will work with teens to show them there are other life paths besides gangs.

This is the first time the city will be venturing into a program modeled after Stockton's Peacekeepers program. The employees will be former gang members who have straightened out their lives, Neighborhood Services Manager Joseph Wood said.

    Just clearing out illegal aliens will help a large part of the problem. LA has had all kinds of grants and programs. They don't work if you don't get the illegals out if town. The problem will grow, and always has.

    Clearing out the illegals is money in the right direction.

    Ms. Mounce was told a few years ago, that the problem would grow because they were making an illegal alien safe haven out of Lodi, and they continue to do so.

    The city needs to mandate E-Verify, which Costco uses, for starters.
