Want to eat donuts with the Cops? Well, then Saturday’s your lucky day!

The following information is from the Concord Police Assocation:

Concord Neighbor:

We are the police officers who patrol Concord neighborhoods. It is our honor to serve and protect the residents of this great city – and to work to prevent crime, wherever possible.

Concord Police Association Officers would like to invite you to drop in and join us for complimentary donuts and coffee on Saturday, April 12th from 10 am to 12 noon at Starbucks at 4125 Concord Blvd. in Dana Plaza off Landana Drive.

This will give us the opportunity to hear firsthand from Concord residents about your specific public safety concerns so we can better serve you and your families. No need to RSVP – just come by. We will be looking forward to meeting and talking with you.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve and protect Concord.

Best regards,

Officer Jeff Krieger

P.S. Feel free to bring the kids – we will have temporary police badge tattoos for the little ones!

Will any of the K-9 officers be there?

mutts April 8, 2014 at 3:03 PM

Do they deliver?

Russ April 8, 2014 at 3:17 PM

“the old Dana Plaza”???

What is it called now? When did it change? Why wasn’t I informed. Heavens to mergatroid!

Don’t see women patrol officers in a long time. Have they all retired or left?

ChampagneKitty April 8, 2014 at 3:37 PM

to anon#4–They are out there. When I went on my police ride-along a couple years ago, I rode with a female officer.

donuts at starbucks? April 8, 2014 at 3:37 PM

Why are they hosting it at a starbucks?
Why not at a locally owned donut shop…..
Why support a chain?

A nice gesture to be sure!

Anon April 8, 2014 at 4:11 PM

Nice gesture. Wonder if the dogs will be there. Would love to see them.

Suzies April 8, 2014 at 4:26 PM

I would like the spinach and feta on a crossiant please.

I'll be there April 8, 2014 at 4:52 PM

would not miss free food. Always great to meet the Officers if CPD, a great bunch doing an incredibly tough job for all of us.

Atticus Thraxx April 8, 2014 at 5:24 PM

It’s cool when they do stuff like this, hope they get a good turn-out. We’re lucky to have the police dept. we do.

MrDioji April 8, 2014 at 5:35 PM

I agree, #6. Why Starbucks?
This is nice though,soI’ll be positive. +

Silva April 8, 2014 at 6:00 PM

I wish I could go!

Shrimp Boy April 8, 2014 at 6:04 PM

Why not the bagel shop and Bux in Park n Shop? Might run off some of the derelicts, to boot.

anon April 8, 2014 at 6:21 PM

Where are the donut’s coming from? I like Kings Donut’s

Why not... April 8, 2014 at 7:00 PM

an open house at the station, I think that would
go a lot furthur in fostering trust and awareness
than a crowded little coffee shop. And if they must,
get the donuts from Chicks or The Best place.

Antler April 8, 2014 at 8:58 PM

Just a guess……..Starbuck’s possibly is comp-ING the doughnuts and coffee. A mom and pop shop just would not be able to do that.

anon April 8, 2014 at 9:54 PM

Me three! will any of the k-9 be there? especially my Figo!

Concord Police K9 Association April 9, 2014 at 2:15 AM

Yes, we will have CPD K9 Ben there for the meet and greet!

anon April 9, 2014 at 6:56 AM

George Randoff, hopefully you never need a cop. And I am in agreement with othet posters here, they really should have used a locally owned business.

nicegal April 9, 2014 at 7:32 AM

Wow. Thanks Concord Police Association. I really appreciate what you are trying to do here. I am sorry that, with every good effort, there is always a little bit of “flack” voiced from the unappreciative.
Having lived in serveral cities around the Bay, and now living and LOVING being a resident of Concord, I can honestly say that the people of Concord are blessed to live in a city that has such a great police department, staffed with men and women who truly care about the residents and their duty. This police force is one of the things that makes this city great! Thank you CPA for facilitating this, and ps guys…there are still local people employed at Starbucks and it’s a great place to meet.

Instead of getting paid to sit at Starbucks and drink coffee, why don’t they walk over to the gambling joint and talk to citizens about that issue? That center has gone from a great neighborhood shopping area to a cesspool
of unwashed toothless tweakers trying to hit a jackpot at a two-bit dive.
How about talking to the hard working owners respectable businesses in that center like The fitness center, Mann’s, or Ssubway to see how they feel about the quality of service CPD provides. The city council should stop this event because what is happening to this center is a perfect example
of their “head up their ass” mentality. Remember, this is Concord, where families come after tweakers, homeless drunks, and degenerates.
Shame on the police and the council.

jtkatec April 9, 2014 at 9:08 AM

Officer Ben would appreciate some doggie treats, as doughnuts go right to his waistline.

@old guy - stop being such a shmuck April 9, 2014 at 1:08 PM

Old Guy:
You really need to chill out and have someone change your diapers. Did you just wake up from your nap, and find yourself to be a little cranky???

The local police are making a good solid effort to reach out the Concord community and address some of their concerns, while also getting to know them on a personal level. I think having a sit down at Starbucks is a great idea to keep in touch with the neighborhood. Perhaps it might be a good oppurtunity for you to thank them for the tough job they do and shake their hands.

Shame on YOU, old guy for being such an ahole.

old guy. April 9, 2014 at 3:34 PM

Live in my neighborhood with these p**cks and their low-life mentality before you jump my case. I have lived in Dana Estates since Farmers Market was in existence. This gambling joint is a disgrace to the community. The police and city council are aware of it, and do nothing about it. When the good of the the many is undermined by ignorance of the few, shaking hands and having a donut solves nothing. Shame on you for being uninformed on the larger issue.

F. Old Guy April 9, 2014 at 7:44 PM

Unamerican cop hater. Tweekers hate cops. Old Guy hates cops. Is Old Guy a tweeker?

Horse n around April 10, 2014 at 7:26 AM

Old guy NEVER has a kind word on here, no matter what the topic.

JumboJack April 11, 2014 at 10:44 PM

I will be there! Looking forward to meeting the Claycord guys and gals

JumboJack April 11, 2014 at 10:45 PM

Old guy you need to get a check up

anon April 12, 2014 at 2:59 AM

Old guy, so that’s what happened to that center. I started going to cinco de mayo lately and was wondering what all the hoodlums were doing there.
#24, you’re overreacting and missing the point entirely. His comment was not to bash the police but to express himself on how far Dana plaza has sunk with the lowlifes. They definitely do need to be cleaned out of there.

anon April 12, 2014 at 3:01 AM

awww that will be nice to meet Ben.

anon April 12, 2014 at 3:02 AM

so never mind the free coffee and donuts, it’s all about the k-9. i’ll see if i can see what his favorite treat is.

anon April 12, 2014 at 3:05 AM
