The Lodi Police Department has issued an order advising residents they have received reports of people impersonation police officers.

According to their statement, the LPD said the fake officers were enforcing non-existent curfews and other violations. One of the impersonators reportedly wore a tactical type vest.

The police department stressed that officers will never ask people to pay for supposed violations. Also, the police advised people being approached by impersonators to closely examine their uniform. 

"While we may have several variations of a uniform (see above and below), things to look for are as follows; a badge showing “Lodi Police,” some officers badges have numbers, a name badge, a patch depicting the Lodi Police Department, and a body-worn camera. Lodi Police Officers contacting you will have no issue providing you their name, agency, and badge number. We also all wear body-worn cameras."

If you are approached by impersonators in Lodi or elsewhere, immediately contact the respective police department.
