CCSPD was featured in ABC57’s Beyond the Badge series! https://www.abc57.com/news/beyond-the-badge-concord-community-school-s-in-house-police-department Officer John Riddle described Concord as a close-knit community. “I think the students connect with us and it's just been a great opportunity and a great experience,” Riddle said. “If you show them who you are and you’re just a normal person, you know, I’ve mended some of those fences the short time I’ve been here with some of those kids that had bad experiences with police and that makes it all worthwhile.” Thank you, Concord Community Schools PD for everything you do to make Concord schools a safe place for all! #ConcordPride
