General Overview of Lodi, California

Lodi, California is a city located in San Joaquin County. It’s also considered to be in the northern part of Central Valley, California.


The population of Lodi is 62,134. It has decreased from 2000, in which the population was estimated as being 68,000.


With a total area of 13.825 square miles, this gives it a population density of 4,500 people per square mile. This is a bit high but it’s not as high as some of the other cities in California.


The median age of the population is 34.3 years. To put this number into better comparison, the national median age is 37.2 years and the State of California’s median age is 33.3 years. Lodi is thus right in line with California.


37.1% of the population is at least 45 years old.


Lodi can trace back its origins to 1859, in which a small group of families in the area settled there and created a school.


Ten years later in 1869, the Central Pacific Railroad was creating a new route in California, and some prominent settlers offered the company 160 acres of land to build a railroad station in that location.


They agreed, and as a direct result, settlers were attracted to the area. Originally, Lodi was called Mokelumne after the river located close by, but soon changed its name due to other towns having similar names.


There is some debate among historians as to where the name “Lodi” originated. Some believe that it was due to a horse that set a four-mile speed record in 1869, while others believe that it was named after a city in Northern Italy of the same name. The more probable reason is that some of the first settlers from the area were from Lodi, Illinois.


The City of Lodi officially became incorporated in 1906.


Lodi’s median household income is $46,924, an increase from 2000 in which it was $39,570. This is not a great average, as the State of California’s median household income is $58,328 and the national average is $53,046. Still though, it’s not too far below, and its increase since 2000 is a positive sign.


The real story in Lodi is its crime rate. It has a crime rate index of 12, meaning that it’s safer than only 12% of the cities in the United States.


There is a 1 in 217 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in Lodi and a 1 in 26 chance of being a victim of a property crime.


The State of California’s averages are, respectively, 1 in 249 and 1 in 38. Of the two crime rates, violent crime is much more worse than the state average.


Crime remains a major problem in Lodi, just as it is in the City of Stockton.


First Security understands the security needs of Lodi and San Joaquin County in general and will be able to provide the very best in security services.
