The Concord Police Officer is typically the first line of contact
with the public on behalf of the City. A large part of the Officer’s
role is to facilitate the resolution of problems by bringing

safety activities of our Officers. Police Officers may be armed and
may be assigned to work in uniform or plain clothes. Flexible shift
schedules include 4-10 and 3-12 options, which may be changed
periodically as job assignments may be rotated among patrol,
traffic, criminal and juvenile investigation, radio dispatching and
administrative services. Specialty assignments may add up to 5%
additional pay. These assignments include Bicycle Patrol; Crime
Scene Investigation; Detective (Special Victims Unit, Major Crimes
Unit, Financial Crimes Unit, Special Investigations (Gangs/Drugs),
and Violence Suppression Unit); Downtown Beat/Foot Patrol; Gang
Unit; K-9 Unit; School Resource Officer; Community Impact Team; and
Traffic. Corporals, Field Training Officers/Police Training Officers
and members of the SWAT Team can also receive additional pay.

the ability to analyze situations and in emergencies, to adopt a
quick, effective and responsible course of action. The work involves
frequent contact with the public and requires the ability to deal
with persons in tense situations where relations may be strained.
Additionally, Police Officers perform related and other work as
required, all within the context of the City's Mission, Vision, and
