Welcome to the web page for the City of Quincy Department of Traffic, Parking, Alarm and Lighting (TPAL). TPAL was created in July 2016 to bring together several different divisions performing similar functions within the City.

The purpose of consolidating these departments was to increase efficiency within the City and to provide service in the timeliest and most cost effective manner. As these divisions utilize similar training, function, tools and equipment, consolidation will provide improved coverage for day to day activities and ensure 24 hour emergency response availability.

Mission Statement

“Enhance the safety of Quincy’s children, residents, visitors, guests, drivers, commuters, and employees of local businesses through effective and efficient management of Traffic, Parking, Alarm, and Lighting System resources and assets.”
