"All that needs to happen is for our city council members to make it their priority, and it will become the chief's priority. " You have hit the nail on the head. But how many are making, or will make, that a priority compared to repaying favors for their $80,000(+) campaigns?

Edi has this exactly right - squeaky wheels (or money wheels) get the attention. You need to call and report and if you don't get a response, show up at a city council meeting and talk about it there. When you have a very specific report like this, there is absolutely no reason to not get action on it. That is also a key - don't report generalities. Report a specific case you want taken care of.

Glad to be able to offer the opportunity, Marnie. It's great to see democracy (and the power of online communication) at work! Welcome, Terry! Thanks for joining in and helping the residents of Concord get a better idea of who they'll be voting for in November.
