Good Neighbor Tip:

Partner with Concord Code Enforcement


Did you know that Concord’s Code Enforcement Officers work in partnership with the community and Police to maintain a safe and healthy living and working environment in the City. 

Code Enforcement, a division of the City’s Police Department consist of 8 individuals who work in a set area of the City on a variety of neighborhood concerns such as: minimum housing code violations, abandoned structures, overgrown lots, abandoned and junk vehicles and other public nuisances within the City. Code Enforcement Officers also write tickets for parking on sidewalks, parking left side of the curb (parking wrong direction of travel), blocking fire hydrants, and parking 25 feet to an intersection.  Aside from taking complaints and investigating possible violations, Code Officers attend neighborhood meetings to answer questions and educate residents. 

While many people think that problems can be immediately resolved by a visit from one of our officers, there is often a due process that must take place to achieve compliance.  Recognized neighborhood leaders should get to know the Code Officers - invite them to attend a neighborhood meeting to answer questions or address concerns.   


If you have questions about City Codes, contact Concord Police Code Enforcement at (704) 920-5150.  To report any code violation, call the Customer Care Center at 704-920-5555.
