Welcome to the Lodi Police Department’s Internet home….
Lodi Police Department announces a partnership with the N.J. Division of Consumer Affairs
This program began Monday October 13th, 2014
Lodi Police will begin taking unwanted/used/old medications 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Project Medicine Drop allows residents to stop in to Police HQ and drop off their unwanted medicines. The Drug Enforcement Agency’s Operation Take Back was a huge success over the years, but that program has ended. NJ has now allowed for local access to this program.
Residents can drop off their unwanted medications at any time, anonymously. Just walk into Police HQ, and you will see a large painted mail box with the Project Medicine Drop logo on it. Drop off your unwanted meds and thats it! As always, NO NEEDLES OR SYRINGES OF ANY KIND WILL BE ACCEPTED.
This program began Monday October 13th, 2014.

A helpful app for parents..
An app created by the F.B.I. can help parents during the first few critical hours if their child ever goes missing. The F.B.I. Child ID app lets parents safely store and retreive critical information about their child so they can provide it to police in the event of an emergency. For more information, follow the link here.
