Concord Community Prosecution Program

The Concord Community Prosecution Program (CCP) started in October 2003 with a Federal grant from the Department of Justice.  The program's goal is decreasing crimes associated with the quality of life; it does this by focusing on repeat criminal offenders and chronic nuisances.  The program has had significant impact on various issues ranging from drug users loitering in public parks to habitual public nuisance offenders.  By hitting repeat offenders with criminal charges and stay-away orders, many have simply gone away.  Contra Costa Deputy District Attorney Jill Henderson heads the operation.  She is assigned to Concord by the county as a Community Prosecutor and works out of the Southern Field Office located on Monument Boulevard.  The program initially focused upon the Monument Corridor area, but is now growing to cover the entire city.  It is mostly funded by the City of Concord.  For more information, please contact Ms. Henderson at (925) 671-5098 or via e-mail at  

Recycling and Hazardous Materials

The City of Concord offers numerous recycling programs including residential curbside and green waste recycling, commercial and apartment recycling, composting classes, construction and demolition waste recycling, and household hazardous waste recycling including oil, paint and other hazardous materials.  For more information call (925) 671-3361 or visit the City's website at
