Click on the photo above for a much larger view of the burglary report.

This week, Concord had 13 burglaries. The week before, Concord had 12, and before that, Concord had 12 burglaries.

The last two numbers in each address have been deleted to respect the privacy of the victim(s).

According to the Concord Police, the report shown above might not include burglaries that are still under investigation.

A city the size of Concord is 12 a lot? I have no idea so I’m asking. September 19, 2013 at 4:34 PM

Julio is right, 12 is not a lot for a city the size of Concord. If it hits 50 week after week, then we should start worrying.

Anyone who steals is a maggot lowlife, period. I notice that a couple of those burglaries are from schools/institutions. I hope they catch these scumbags….

@Julio & The Mayor

I bet it’s a lot if you’re unfortunately one of the twelve victims. September 19, 2013 at 6:38 PM

@Felino, very true.

If you’re the one who has been burglarized one is too many!

I trust the burglary stats in Concord, where this crime is relatively unusual and the police usually will come out and take a report. However, in some cities like Oakland, burglaries are so commonplace the police are overwhelmed and don’t come out unless the burglar is actually on the grounds.

As soon as a city allows their police department to direct burglary calls to some online system and/or the city fails to send out an officer to take a report, people will be less likely to even report such crimes.

Bottom line – Property crime in cities like Oakland is MUCH WORSE than the stats indicate.

Concord had 901 burglaries last year.

Martinez had 192. Martinez is 1/3 the size of Concord.

I think Concord has too many burglaries. But we live in WC, which has less than Concord, and more than Martinez.

I’d like to see zero!

We live in WC, so I thought I’d check out local cities.

WC-423 burglaries last year. 65,211 residents.

PH-215 burglaries last year. 33,689 residents.

Martinez has a lower crime rate than surrounding suburbs, except affluent ones. Even though Concord is bigger than WC, PH and Martinez, it has a slightly higher crime rate.

Martinez has less diversity. Hmm….
