The City of Concord is asking the community for input about what characteristics the next Chief of Police should bring to the job. To gather the information, the City has launched a survey asking community members what the City Manager should consider when filing this leadership role.

This fall, current Police Chief Guy Swanger announced his retirement after nine years of leading Concord’s Police Department and 36 years in the profession.

The City is working with a recruiting firm to identify the most qualified candidates to fill this role. The application period will be open until December 9, 2019. Interviews for the position will be held in late January 2020. The City Manager expects to have this role filled by spring 2020.

To ensure that the City Manager is selecting a candidate with the qualities, skills and experience that are most important to the Concord community, the City developed a short survey to request community feedback.

The survey can be accessed in English and in Spanish, and the deadline for completion is December 20, 2019.
