It's time to welcome our newest members of the Quincy Police Department! On July 2, 2018, five new members joined the Quincy Police Department as full time police officers. At this point, they have completed their Field Training and are now assigned to various shifts / areas of the City.
Please meet Officer Stephen Graham. Officer Graham worked at the Norfolk Sheriff's Office for 4 years prior to joining Quincy PD. He is currently assigned to the 4pm-12am shift as a fill-in, which means he could be working any section of the city or even inside the station processing prisoners or answering 911 calls. Here's a little bit of information to get to know him.
