Message from the Chief of Police
Welcome to the City of Concord Police Department website. I hope you find it informative and helpful.
The Concord Police Department is a full service law enforcement agency that covers over 60 square miles and serves a resident population of over 90,000 people. The department is comprised of 188 law enforcement officers and approximately 40 civilian coworkers who are dedicated to a culture of excellence.
The growing City of Concord is home to its own regional airport, the Concord Mills Mall with over 200 stores and over 17 million visitors annually, and the Charlotte Motor Speedway and ZMAX Dragway among other attractions.
The Concord Police Department is committed to community policing through the use of evidence-based, problem- oriented, and data driven strategies. We recognize that public safety is not achieved in a vacuum. Our success is largely dependent upon developing and maintaining strong partnerships with an engaged community. The Concord Police Department is therefore committed to: being respectful, transparent and accountable to the public; engaging in ethical and professional standards of conduct; achieving positive results; and continuous improvement in order to exceed the community's expectations and better serve the citizens, visitors, and businesses of Concord.
The City of Concord and Concord Police Department have a long and distinguished history. It is an extreme honor and privilege to serve as Chief of Police and for my family and I to be members of such a great community. Thank you for visiting our website and stay safe!
