Behind the Badge: 20 years on SWAT

The black ballistic helmet sits atop a cabinet in my office. It has “POLICE” in white letters on the front and “29” (my badge number) on the back. There are autographs from current and former Lodi Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics officers on it — team members who served with me during my nine years as the SWAT commander. They presented me with the helmet when I rotated off the unit in August after 20 years as a SWAT team member.
