POLICE Department

Message from the Chief

Welcome to our recruiting webpage. As a prospective applicant I understand you have options of where to apply and I appreciate you taking the time to consider the Concord Police Department. CPD is one of the largest municipal law enforcement agencies in the region, yet small enough where everyone knows each other by name.

CPD practices an evidence-based community policing philosophy, which has been successful in lowering Concord’s crime rate to a level not seen in over 20 years. The men and woman who dedicate their lives to keeping Concord safe are exceptional at what they do, and rest assured if you join CPD you will be joining a winning team of professionals.

As Chief of Police, I practice an inclusive style of leadership where – regardless of your level of experience – your ideas and input matter. My officers are my most valued resource. But don’t take my word for it. Examine this entire website, read officer testimonials, watch our videos, go on a ride along, tour our facilities, and talk to my staff. I’m confident after doing so you too will want to join the Concord Police Department and Be the Change.

-Chief Gary J. Gacek
