Officer Roger White Retired July 8th. Please join us in wishing Officer Roger White a happy and healthy retirement! Roger began his career in 1987 at Randolph Police Department where he became their first DARE Officer. In 1994, he transferred to the Quincy Police Department.
Once again, the Boston Law Firm, Breakstone, White & Gluck has graciously donated over 200 bicycle helmets to the Quincy Police Department. The donation comes as part of their 2020 Project KidsSafe campaign.
You've heard of the "Grandparent Scam" before. An elderly resident receives a phone call stating that a family member is in trouble. The caller will then either pose as a bail bondsman or a lawyer and ask for money to help get the relative out of trouble. Typically the scammer instructs the victim to wire money or purchase large amounts of gift cards - often totaling thousands of dollars. A new tactic we have recently learned about is the use of a "courier." The scammer informs the victim that a courier will stop by their home to pick up the money. In these scams, the money is typically wired, or gift card numbers are provided over the phone or internet. This is the first time we are seeing someone show up at a victim's home for payment.
Please welcome two more of our newest officers, Officer Joshua Walker and Officer Nicholas Lawrence. These two have quite a bit in common. They attended the MBTA Police Academy together, both worked for the Transit Police for about two years, and both are Army veterans.
