Please welcome three of our newest police officers: Officer Scott Kelley, Officer Matthew O'Flaherty, and Officer Ryan Callanan. Combined they have over a dozen years of law enforcement experience. They were sworn in on Monday, April 6th and have since been participating in the Quincy Police Field Training Program, with some modifications. Instead of riding together, each new officer is assigned one Field Training Officer (FTO) and they ride in separate vehicles.
Officer Scott Kelley is a life-long Quincy resident. He is married with a two-year old daughter and is expecting his second daughter in July! He has 8 years of law enforcement experience. He's been working the day shift alongside Officer Gregg Hartnett. Once his training is complete, he will be assigned to day shift patrol.
Officer Matthew O'Flaherty joins us from the Chelsea Police Department where he was the recipient of the 2019 Irish American Police Officers Association (IAPOA) Lifesaving Award. He served four years in the United States Marine Corp. Matt has spent the last few weeks on the overnight patrol shift, working alongside Officer Dan Clark - a fellow Marine. Thank you both for your service!
Officer Ryan Callanan comes to us from the UMass Boston Police Department, where he worked for 2 years. He is a veteran that served in the United States Army. Ryan served in Kandahar Afghanistan in 2013-2014 and in the Army reserves for 6 years. He's also a big Boston sports fan - as so many of us are! He has worked alongside Officer Andrew Keenan on overnight patrol where he will remain once field training is complete. Thank you for your service Ryan!
Please join us in welcoming Scott, Matt, and Ryan to the Quincy Police Department!
