The police are great at giving out speeding tickets and tickets for stop sign violations. But whatRead More about apprehending criminals who commit serious crimes? Seems like the focus should be spent on undercover work and detective work. It is easier, I surmise, to give out traffic violations than match wits with criminals.

@jpf2361: The grant money covers the OT for the extra patrols so that the taxpayers don't have toRead More pay for it.

Thanks for the clarification Tony. Maybe in the future Lt. O'Malley could mention why a Grant isRead More needed. Thanks

Congratulations to all of the awardees. They have a tough job to do and deserve our support.

I remember playing football with Jason back in 1988 when Concord won the State Championship. He hitRead More like a Mack Truck, but he was definitely the leader of that team and a great guy. Congratulations Jason.

CPD is the best! They protect the citizens every day!

Melissa, it's unfortunate that your opinion of the Concord Police stems solely from your deviantRead More mother's several encounters. Based on what is public of her criminal history, I highly doubt an lawsuit would end favorably for you. When individuals choose to commit crimes, they violate the rights of those around them - are we to respect their privacy and let their deeds go unreported? I think not. Secondly, you are sadly mistaken regarding the severity of crimes which occur within the city of Concord. There are hundreds of crimes and situations which do sadly go unreported. We may not be Los Angeles, but violent crimes do occur here on a regular basis. Lastly, I think it's time you stand back and learn to appreciate those men and women who have dedicated their lives to serving and protecting the community. They don't enjoy struggling with your mother any more than she enjoys their repeated attention. God willing, Mr. Dunia, pictured above, will be the lucky recipient of the kind of justice we are so lucky to have in this country.

April appears to have her fair share of natural beauty. No denying that fact. She may even have itRead More halfway together, when off the drugs. However, this gal is on the road to losing everything. I know it never helps to state the obvious, but drugs really suck.

The brush fire near the knocked down utility pole at NHTI has been contained.

FYI: North Spring Street between Centre and School streets is being closed to clear a downed tree.
jpf2361 April 14, 2014 at 07:35 pm
@Tony Schinella, Here is a good story for you to look into. I have called the City of Concord forRead More trees in my neighborhood that are on City Property (between the Sidewalk and the Street) that have dead or downed limbs and I have been told (more than once) that these City Owned Trees are now the responsibility of the people who own the house nearest to them. How can this be? Did they pass some new ordinance within the City that we the Taxpayers weren't notified about?

What a terrible waste. Didn't see it in this report, but have to wonder if this young man wasRead More wearing a seatbelt? Appears he probably was not. Regardless, buckle up, people. Seatbelts save lives isn't just a slogan; it's the living truth.

Who needs local police when there is state police everywhere.
