At the start of tonight’s Finance & Human Resources Committee meeting, Lt. Wayne Smith was officially sworn in as the City of Lodi’s Chief of Police.
The entire force was on hand to witness the ceremony.
At the police station after the ceremony, the new chief accepted the role with good humor and tradition: “I brought donuts”.
