This article has been edited to correct the employment status of Officer Lowe.
Last night at a special session of the City of Lodi Common Council, new officer Jeff Okey was officially sworn in as a member of the Lodi Police Department. Okey’s family was on-hand to see the ceremony.
Temporary officer Joseph Lowe was unable to make the ceremony, as he was helping WI State Patrol with a motorist who needed assistance. Lowe comes from the State Patrol, and is with Lodi Police in a part time role. The department is currently looking for another full-time officer to replace the vacancy left by Bobbi Brown. Officer Brown resigned her position in Lodi to take a position as a dispatcher with Dane County 911 Services.

He has been a teacher, a writer, a designer, and is the founder of the Redleaf Consulting Group.
