Here is a little information regarding the approximately 80 members of the Lodi Police Department Partners, which is a volunteer group of men and women. They perform multiple tasks to help the Lodi Police Department and the city of Lodi.

During 2013, the Partners donated 23,337 hours of service for a total benefit to the city of $770,121. Tasks they perform include vacation house checks, processing abandoned vehicles, transporting equipment/staff/evidence, traffic control when the need arises and for special events, issuing disabled and vehicle citations, removing garage sale signs, serving subpoenas, handling the false alarm permits and billing, and many other duties.

In their 20 years of existence, ending December 2013, the Partners have volunteered over 492,253 hours. The total benefit to the city of Lodi is approximately $10 million of free labor, as well as $491,305 of actual dollar income from the False Alarm Program.

A new Partners academy will be held for two weeks in October. There is space available for you. If interested, please call 209-333-6886.

I am very proud to be a member of the Lodi Police Partners program under the direction of Chet Somera.
