The Quincy Police is proud to announce that we will join numerous police departments across the United States in promoting Autism Awareness. For the month of April, uniformed personnel are allowed to replace the standard shoulder patch with the Quincy Police Autism Awareness Patch as a reminder of our commitment to those we serve.
Happy 3rd birthday Luna! Luna, a Belgian Malinois, joined the Quincy Police Department in 2018 as the canine partner of Officer Paul Jackson. Luna is one of only a few female dual purpose dogs in the northeast region. She is a certified dual purpose Patrol / Explosive Ordinance Detection (EOD) canine.
Lexi is a 3-year-old female Belgian Malinois that joined the Quincy Police Department in 2017 as the canine partner of Officer Kent Yee. It was at that time that she became the first female canine certified dual purpose Patrol / Explosive Ordinance Detection (EOD) canine in the northeast region. This means that she not only has the ability to sniff out wanted suspects and/or discarded items, but can also locate explosives.
The Quincy Police Marine Unit, in partnership with the Massachusetts Environmental Police, will be presenting three Basic Boating Safety Courses at no cost to the public. These courses are designed for persons 12 years old and up, regardless of boating skill.
