On Wednesday, Lodi police said goodbye to Cpl. Roger Butterfield, who is retiring after more than 20 years with the department.

“The closer it gets, the less excited you are about it,” Butterfield said during a ceremony at the Lodi Police Department attended by fellow officers, his wife Maria, and his children.

After a stint as a deputy with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department, Butterfield joined the Lodi Police Department and became an officer in 1991. He was promoted to corporal in 1996 and worked multiple assignments until his retirement this year.

“Roger gets the job done, and he gets the job done well,” Lodi Police Chief Mark Helms said Wednesday.

Butterfield still plans to work part-time for the Lodi Police Department. He plans to be involved with transportation, park patrol and background investigations.

“Everyone’s been good to me,” Butterfield said. “The city has been good to me.”
