Mayor Quan take note. You may learn something about fighting crime: Tribune story; Concord Police Chief Gary Swanger credits his city's 6.5 percent drop in violent crime to aggressive pursuit of drug dealers and gang members, clearing out homeless encampments and staffing police headquarters with outside domestic violence counselors.
