Former Concord Police Chief Robert Bradshaw died last week, a statement from the department said. He was 79.
Bradshaw served as the department’s chief from 1995-99 after an interim role in that spot from 1992-93. He died Sept. 14.
He also was an assistant chief with the San Jose Police Department and Nevada Highway Patrol in the 1970s before becoming the chief of the Reno Police Department from 1981-91. A release from that department said Bradshaw was “widely regarded as an expert in community-oriented policing and is credited with bringing that philosophy to the Reno Police Department.”
That department’s motto, “Your Police, Our Community, also can be attributed to him, they said.
Concord police did not announce any information on services for Bradshaw.
