Lori Stilts was first recruited by the Morro Bay Police Department in 2007, after spending a few years having a couple kids. Ready to get back to work and have adult conversation, Lori worked part-time as the Property and Evidence Technician for PD.  Shortly thereafter and desiring more hours, she took on a second part-time position in the Water Billing Department at City Hall.  It could be said that the Harbor Department stole Lori from PD and City Hall offering her more opportunity, or at least one full time job. Now working as the Harbor Department’s Business Coordinator, Lori’s main responsibly is to help the Harbor Director get through his day and on schedule. When not working for the City, Lori is a Team Member with The San Luis Obispo Sheriff’s Search and Rescue and drives her kids around to an abundance of 4H and sporting events.

Jeremiah Jacobs spent many of his early years as a lifeguard for various agencies around the county honing his nonexistent paddle board skills and futilely working on a base tan. He gained some recognition as a  sprinter for Cuesta aquatics and is a graduate of the Allan Hancock Fire Academy. Since joining the ranks of the Harbor Department, Jeremiah has proven his dedication by attempting to fix things he has no business touching and inflicting coworkers with his dry, sarcastic humor. Jeremiah considers himself extremely fortunate to be trusted in his role as Harbor Patrol Officer and is proud to serve the community of Morro Bay.
