I will say that ever since I took the Citizens Police Academy class with the great men and women of the Quincy Police Department my appreciation for the police has skyrocketed. I would also add that having the chance to get to know Chief Adam Yates makes me recommend applying for this job if you're interested, he is someone I would want to work for.
