Three Suspects with uutstanding DUI warrants were captured during a recent Concord Police Dept. sweep.

The following information is from the Concord Police Dept.:

Some think if they just don’t show up for a court hearing, the police won’t have the manpower to come find them. If your violation is a DUI, don’t count on it. Concord Police Department Officers with dozens of outstanding arrest warrants fanned out into neighborhoods in search of high risk DUI offenders today. Officers served warrants and arrested 3 offenders who either failed to show up for a court date or violated terms of their probation in an outstanding DUI case.

“The best bet for anyone with a missed DUI court date is go to court on their own now,” said Sergeant Cody Harrison. “If you don’t, that warrant isn’t going away. We’re going to come find you and take you to jail.”

Those caught often face additional jail time for failing to appear in court or for violating probation. When family, friends, and co-workers find out, violators can also face personal embarrassment as they are lead away in handcuffs, as well as missing work while sitting in jail.

Special DUI Warrant Service Operations along with regularly scheduled ‘High Visibility’ DUI enforcement has a deterrent effect on those who disregard driving safety and abuse alcohol and drugs. Concord PD places a high priority on lowering deaths and injury with the goal of removing impaired drivers and heightening awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

Funding for the operation is provided by a grant form the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Report Drunk Drivers; Call 9-1-1!

All DUI’s should get some jail time.

Why doesn’t CPD post the names of the suspects on Claycord.com so if we see them we can call CPD and tell them where they are?

Want to do something cool? Post some pix and names of people with outstanding DUI warrants on Claycord with a phone number for the PD. Then youll see a bunch of arrests.

A whole bunch

And what’s the matter with pointing fingers at crooks? The quicker they are off the streets the better for the rest of us.

Do the crime, do the time.

9 seepsee May 17, 2014 at 4:06 PM

12 People in Oakland don't Snitch..... May 17, 2014 at 5:15 PM

they would rather let a neighbrhood maggot get away with blowing a 7 year old girls brains out while she plays in her own front yard.

13 Cowellian May 17, 2014 at 5:32 PM

No, missing court dates makes them stupid crooks (or drunk drivers, as the case may be).

14 Anonymous May 17, 2014 at 5:39 PM

Right seepsee, Theese are fine outstanding citizens, just had a little too much to drink and forgot to go to court.

Idiot

15 @#9 May 17, 2014 at 6:51 PM

Since 853PC. Now shut up.

16 me May 17, 2014 at 7:11 PM

Mayor can you please give info on how to clean this up because I have a family member who had an unresolved DUI conviction and he went to Walnut Creek Superior court, where he was convicted, stood in line for an hour, only to be told that Walnut Creek no longer handles DUI’s. But got very little info as where to go. They only said he had to go to Martinez. It was just a cluster **ck of misinformation. He got it resolved, but he could have done it a lot faster if he just had some info.

17 @seepee May 17, 2014 at 7:13 PM

You inquire “since when does missing a court date make you a crook? “Well as you no doubt know you sign a promise the appear. That’s instead of staying in jail. We assume that being arrested for DUI would be pretty significant to most people and they would remember they promised to appear. If they don’t they are crooks. Tell all your friends and drinking buddies.

Go to the oldest court house- 725 Court St. Martinez
Enter at the corner of Main & Pine St.
Do not go thru the weapons screening station- but go to the first door on the right- give them your name & DOB & they will tell you whats up

@ Seepsee, you sound like a stellar individual. Not reporting someone who has an outstanding arrest for drunken driving if you know where that individual is, is not only doing a disservice to society but let’s the drunkyard continue his dangerous behavior. This can hardly constitute snitching. We are not in High School anymore this is the real world. Do the crime face the consequence of your actions……

21 gonzo May 18, 2014 at 4:25 PM

The concord area is doomed too much crime and too little being done about it ive seen people doing drugs in parked cars and im not talking about pot

22 @gonzo May 18, 2014 at 5:56 PM

So, what did you do about it?

23 Marianne May 18, 2014 at 7:02 PM

Three less drunk drivers off the street, three less potential deaths; this is fine by me. Well done!

He would show you the exact way of how best to fight the case and establish
your claims. A trained, licensed Denver car accident lawyer has vast experience in tort (personal injury)
law, and is far better able to deal with insurance companies.

With the cost of new vehicles rising, many car
shoppers are seeking out new or pre-owned vehicles.

25 DUI Lawyer Orange County May 22, 2014 at 1:25 PM

DUI Lawyer Virginia Beach just posted spam.

-This story is why it is so important to have proper representation when being tried for DUI. Not showing up for your court dates will not make the DUI charge disappear. Having representation is the BEST thing you can do for yourself. Why risk having a warrant out for your arrest? They can come to your home/place of work! Anyone who has been arrested for DUI should seek professional counsel immediately!
