On Wednesday, July 18, 2018 the Concord Police Department will hold a Crime and Safety Briefing and the public is invited to attend.

The meeting will be held at the Smith Tower at Charlotte Motor Speedway and will begin at 6:30 p.m. This is an opportunity for residents to interact directly with members of the Concord Police Department and receive information regarding their neighborhoods, so please attend.

This year marks the 17th year of National Night out Celebration for the City of Concord!!!

In addition to increasing awareness of crime, NNO strengthens neighborhood bonds and community-police partnerships, while sending a message to criminals that neighborhoods are taking a stand against crime! Bonded neighborhoods deter crime by sending the message that you are close to your neighbors and everyone is aware of what is happening in your neighborhood, and is watching out for each other.

In observance of National Night Out on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, the Concord Police Department asks that at minimum you leave your porch light on from 7:00 p.m – 10:00 p.m. The porch light is a symbol of alertness and awareness; it also makes your neighbors and friends feel welcome. Participation is not limited to leaving your porch light on August 7. We would like you to get to know your neighbors better. You can do this by going door to door and introducing yourself if you have not done so in the past. Feel free to organize neighborhood activities such as block parties, cookouts, porch sittings, and other events to show your “notolerance” for crime.

If your neighborhood is planning a NNO activity, please submit the details to Chris Friguglietti no later than July 15. Mail – PO Box 308, 28026, Fax – 704-920-6970, Phone: 704-920-5063 or Email: .

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 85,000 people.  The department is comprised of 183 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!
