Congratulations to those Lodi Police Department officers who were recently promoted! Well deserved! How refreshing it is to read articles like this, to know that there are still agencies that promote from within, are well-trained and have an effective and engaged chief. I believe in the old saying that you lead by example.
Can I suggest that the Galt Police Department do the same? Seems all I read is that someone is leaving for another department and their position is not filled. Maybe I missed an article, but have they promoted within for any of their last available positions? The Lodi citizens and city council hold their police department accountable; citizens of Galt should consider doing the same.
