Concord Police Chief spoke at our Oct. 8 meeting, updating us on the current state of policing in Concord in the light of recent nationwide reactions to police brutality.  The Concord Police Department has received very few complaints. They are already in compliance with all recommended procedures. All Concord Police officers have bachelors or higher degrees. Since the pandemic, the Department has seen a significant rise in mental health calls, 70 so far this year in contrast to 40 for the entire previous year The increase is probably attributable to the isolation imposed by the pandemic. It is always reassuring to hear Chief O'Connor's candid remarks at our meetings. Thank you Joe
