Lodi Police Priorities
Daily Police Service
The number one activity performed by peace officers is the details that officers are assigned to do on a daily basis. They include; responding to calls for service, traffic law enforcement, testifying in court, transporting prisoners to and from the court, warrant service, lapel camera archiving, and scheduling.
Checking in on our neighbors
The second most common activity for the officers is building checks, business, industrial, and residential. Most business checks are completed when the business is closed; however, 1st and 2nd shifts drive through and by businesses on a regular basis. Residential checks are completed in an ongoing manner through proactive patrols.
The next most common activity is traffic enforcement. The police department averages 27 traffic stops per month, with 12 citations being issued.
Crimes do happen, even in Lodi
The most common call for service is property crime-related (theft, burglary, and vandalism), with a close second being domestic-related and drug issues. We also respond on a regular basis to barking or lose dogs, noise complaints, suspicious persons or cars, and neighbor disputes.
Our department motto is; “Courtesy, Service, and Courage”
