                                          COMMUNITY POLICE  

The Quincy Housing Authority has unveiled its newest Quincy Police Department Community Office at Tobin Towers, 80 Clay Street. A renovated storage area is now the home of the newest Community Office. This office, located on the first floor, will give Community Police Officer, Jim Silcox, a dedicated space in which he can access a computer and meet with residents.  Community Police Officers seek to improve the quality of life for our citizens. Working the same part of the city gives the officers an opportunity to gain familiarity, ownership, and establish relationships with citizens in their neighborhoods. We have found that citizens, who may not otherwise report a crime or suspicious activity, are more willing to do so if they know an officer personally. Having this space will allow us to better serve our residents living in Quincy Housing Authority properties.  Similar offices have been created at other Quincy Housing Authority properties: O'Brien Towers (73 Bicknell Street); Pagnano Towers (109 Curtis Ave); and Sawyer Towers (95 Martensen Street). An office at Drohan Apartments (170 Copeland Street) is expected in the near future.



As of July 1, 2015 the Quincy Housing Authority has established a smoke free environment!   For decades, we have known the harmful effects of tobacco use, including smoking and second-hand smoke exposure.  Health related issues caused by tobacco use also lead to increased medical costs for the community, as well as the individual.  A tobacco and smoke-free environment is a healthier environment for everyone.  Together we can implement strategies that support and sustain healthy lifestyles where people can live, work, learn and play.
