This is the Concord Police weekly burglary report. Please click on the image for a much larger view.

This week, Concord had 32 burglaries. The week before, Concord had 21, and before that, Concord had 14 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.

RULE # 1. Don’t blame the victim
RULE # 2. Do not park your car at Lime Ridge open space at YVR and Montecito.

I am willing to band with others to place flyers on windshield in the lot when I pass by, coming home from W/C. My only concern is the potential for the paper to turn into litter.

Maybe we can sponsor some type of parking signs/poles, that states:

Feel victimized? Car broken into? Let us know at

Lots of commercial and vehicle crime this week.

This is really not good…..the police department needs to add more people, the city council needs to stand responsible for crime in our city. I hate to see what summer brings. Last night 2 cars parked on side of Larkspur right off Lynwood for quite a while, occupied. I have given up calling the police.

We have a lot of kids that like to park in our neighborhood and smoke their pot and are generally up to no good, I used to call the police now I just stand across the street with a big flash light and shine it at their car and tell them to move on. They move on pretty quickly with no fuss. Unfortunately it is up to us citizens and neighbors to watch out for each other and take back our neighborhoods. If they know you are watching they move on to somewhere where no one is paying attention

Wow May 2, 2014 at 9:55 AM

Residential burgs. way up! Disturbing at least.
That’s why I keep my eyes open for anyone I
don’t recognize, not nosy, just observant .
Lets watch each others backs friends.

I think the police should be disbanded on grounds they’re lazy and corrupt. The judicial system victimizes the people daily.
But on the burglary note, maybe meantime the police is around they should start harassing crackheads for suspicion of being under the influence of methamphetamines with such intensity as they prosecute and cite a man for vehicle registration, or government issued license infractions.

CPD May 2, 2014 at 10:07 AM

Annon, the police department is accepting all donations to pay for the salaries of extra police patrols, just as all Civil service positions are.

Annon May 2, 2014 at 11:14 AM

@*CPD REALLY……We pay taxes on our home, we have a small business in concord, we pay taxes on… extra cash comes from my social security, no double dip or lifelong salaries for us….We pay our insurance too….this is a matter for city council and CPD, there are other things to cut….i want a count on all city employees, city council, and cpd, that live and work in our city….it should be in the bylaws…..not only will more tax dollars come in, but they may all give a damn………………..or take taxes from all the pot houses and drug houses they are well known by cpd……they cost extra to keep us safe from crime……move the parol office off parkside, and move the parolees living on subsidized vouchers out of the motel on Willow Pass. Maybe more of us should be walking the areas to patrol/without guns. I did this a few times and was told it was not a good idea…..Lets fire the bad apples we have in the city and cpd…..screw up and your out…….Donations my …..who is in charge of that little bank account?????????????////I am going to look up the law on that, that seems to have some problems/red flags…..areas get special security from cpd, for payment……does that have another name?

I, for one, appreciate all the help and efforts of our police and city staff. Them plus us concerned citizens need to partner together to make our hometown inhospitable to criminals. If you think about it, we’re not doing too badly for a town of 700,000 folks. 32 incidents isn’t perfect and it could be worse (that’s just one afternoon in Oakland)

I always thought Police had “beats”….. I don’t think Peets Coffee need to be base camp.

I only see cops come by Pine Hollow, if they respond to something.

I would think Pine Hollow area is on some “beat”, and an office would “patrol” it. Can Roundtree really be taking away Our resources?!

Obviously our penal system is not working. The answer is not to build more prisons but to bring back hard, manual labor camps for thieves and scoundrels. Perhaps the threat of working in a rock quarry or digging trenches for 8 hours a day would be a strong deterrent for these losers……

When will people stop being afraid of May 2, 2014 at 11:39 AM

thieves and burglars? They should be terrified of us.

Laws need to change, brave men and women need to lock and load.

California Nightmare May 2, 2014 at 11:41 AM

More than 1.8 million California school students were truant in 2011-2012 – nearly 30 percent of all public school students. Eighty three thousand elementary school students in the state risk academic failure by being chronically truant (missing more than 10 percent of the school year.)

A student is “truant” by being absent from school without a valid excuse for more than thirty minutes during the school day on three occasions in one school year. It is a statistic that rose significantly with budget cuts during the state’s fiscal crisis.

A number of bills are aimed at determining the extent of this issue and ways to measure its impact. For more on the effort read Lawmakers Look for Solutions to California Truancy Epidemic.

The Democrats running this state (including the all-powerful teachers union) are running it into the ground. Early release or no jail time for felons, 30% of “students” are truant. Homeless roaming the streets without regard for their own safety or the safety of others.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have some real Republicans back in charge ? Tough on crime, holding schools accountable, reigning in greedy government unions?

You hear people say what kind of community Concord was 20 years ago…
And how much it’s changed…..think ahead what will develop next 20 years …
Be the positive change you want to see

Idiocracy May 2, 2014 at 11:57 AM

32 in one week! Time to step my home security up! Cameras, big dog, etc.. Maybe a moat and drawbridge.. Time for Concord residents to step up our game and clean up our streets. Man up,stop letting trash ruin our city. BTW # 5 I’d rather them smoking weed than drinking.

Anon May 2, 2014 at 12:40 PM

My car was broken into last night and we are in what I thought was a pretty quiet and safe street. Security system is being installed this week.

anon May 2, 2014 at 2:16 PM

Maybe if CPD were to write their police reports in a neighborhood where they are highly visible it would cut down on burglaries. I see them all the time hiding in the back lot of LDS church on Denkinger Rd.

RANDOM TASK May 2, 2014 at 3:42 PM

Obviously the dems approach of reform is working wonders they have the criminals ( their cohorts ) in line and us being deweaponized to make it easier as well as lack of police and jails is the dems party dream …all hail the dems their plans are in full swing …….ENJOY

Robby May 2, 2014 at 5:34 PM

There seems to be ALOT more tweekers running around. Tweekers are your burglars. They steal to feed their habit. It seems to me the PD needs to refocus. We’ve got gang shootings and it appears burglaries keep getting worse and worse. Citizens need to speak up! Don’t let the gangsters, dopers/burglars take over this city!

RANDOM TASK May 2, 2014 at 7:34 PM

uhhhh this is a direct result of the dems pocketing the money for prisons and overcrowding is causing the lowlife thieves out to go un accosted since there is no where to put em …..and by the way they have more rights than you do if you harm them they will be living in your house and you will be on streets stealing …….TY DEMS FOR TAKING OUR RIGHT TO DEFEND OURSELVES AND PUTTING THOUSANDS OF THIEVES AND DRUF DEALERS BACK ON THE STREETS

Had Enought YET ? May 2, 2014 at 8:03 PM

Increase in property crimes is not unique to Concord. Is going on all over the State. Misdemeanor criminals are routinely released early because of jail overcrowding caused by the bill democrats passed back in 2011, AB-109.

Criminals know even if they are convicted of a Felony they will NOT be sent to State Prison, democrats have seen to that. They also changed sentencing on about 500 crimes and they set it up so sentences are automatically cut in half.

Your current assemblywoman and senator both voted for AB-109.

But rest assured in a year or two when crime rate has doubled, democrats will pitch a tax increase to “fight crime” AND keep our kids safe.

RANDOM TASK May 3, 2014 at 7:50 AM

@ 23 indeed the dems have a tax hike to remedy their own mess……just ask em
