Community Based Policing
For Concord Police Department, Community Based Policing is a philosophy and not just another program. In other words, all coworkers must be involved in fighting crime and the fear of crime in our community. This approach is recognized throughout the international police profession as the preferred way to police.
Concord's Community Based Policing approach involves three approaches that integrate into our philosophy. The first is taking a coactive approach to crime and the fear of crime by developing strong community partnerships. Beginning September 01, 2001, Concord Patrol Officers were assigned to work the same area each tour of duty as much as possible. Also, during this time, all community meetings began being attended by officers. This includes command staff and line officers.
The second part of our philosophy is active, formulized problem solving. After extensive training, this problem solving began January 01, 2002. These projects involve officers identifying a problem particular to a neighborhood and using a formulized process to solve the problems. The process is referred to as SARA (scanning, analysis, response and assessment). Each of these projects is designed to reduce calls for service (crime). These 80 projects include speeding problems; disorder issues (noise, trash, etc.) drug use, armed robbery, etc.
The third component is accountability. This requires officers and commanders to be accountable for crime and disorder issues in the neighborhoods they police.

Since the implementation of Megan’s Law, police departments have access to sex offender information and photos through the Megan’s Law CD-ROM. The Department of Justice updates the CD-ROM every three months. The information on the CD-ROM can be used to help identify those offenders that are out of compliance with their annual registration requirements. For many sex registrants, failure to register annually is now a felony offense.
