The Special Operations Unit consists of the Traffic Detail, School Resource Officers (SRO), and our Bicycle Unit.
These units are utilized to their fullest capacity to assist the Lodi Police Department in its commitment to Community Oriented Policing Services in an effort to improve the quality of life for all Lodi citizens.
The Lodi Downtown Bicycle Patrol consists of one full-time bicycle officer and eight patrol officers certified in bicycle patrol who are utilized for special events and additional enforcement. All are committed to keeping the downtown area a safe and clean environment for families to visit.
Four officers are assigned to handle the seventeen schools within the city limits of Lodi who operate out of the Investigations Unit of the Lodi Police Department.
The primary duty of the Traffic Unit is to reduce the number of vehicle collisions within the City of Lodi. We accomplish this by increasing our visibility and focusing our enforcement at high accident locations, as well as responding to requests from citizens for enhanced enforcement at specific locations.
