Another Lt. Quinn advances at Gloucester PD

After 17 years at the Gloucester Police Department, David Quinn woke up and put on a new uniform this week, that of the promoted lieutenant.

Quinn follows his father’s footsteps in police work within the city, and joins the ranks of his brother, Lt. Tom Quinn, a detective in the department.

“I’m very excited to start a new phase of my career,” David Quinn said Tuesday. “I’m so proud to be the second Lt. Quinn of the family. I would like to thank Chief (Leonard) Campanello and Mayor (Carolyn) Kirk for this opportunity.”

Quinn qualified for the position after taking a lieutenant’s exam in the wake of Lieutenant Thomas Williams’ retirement. But, he also earned his stripes by filling a leadership role in police programs, including a police fitness initiative he headed last fall.

Chief Campanello called Quinn an “innovative thinker,” and said the newly appointed lieutenant committed to evolving with the Police Department.

“Quinn’s leadership style is very consistent with the philosophy of a community-minded leadership team,” Campanello said. “He is very well respected by the younger officers under his command and supports them and assists them.”

Mayor Kirk, who appointed Quinn to the position, said new leadership within all ranks at the Gloucester Police Department has raised the standards of professionalism and community policing in Gloucester.

“This is the second time I’ve promoted Sgt. Quinn,” Kirk said. “I promoted him from patrolman to sergeant back in 2008. It’s been gratifying to see him progress to lieutenant.”
