It is with great pleasure that I announce that Animal Control Officer Steve Scherer has been selected as Employee of the Month for February 2013.

Steve was hired by the City of Quincy on August 21, 1980.  On March 24, 2003 he joined the Quincy Police Department as an Animal Control Officer (ACO).  Steve has completed both Levels 1 and 2 of the National Animal Control Association Training Academy.  As an ACO his responsibilities are many, including investigating reports of animal abuse and neglect, animals running at large, the enforcement of other ordinances pertaining to domestic animals, and response to dangerous animals both domesticated and wild.  Steve has repeated demonstrated that he is the right person for this job.  In many ways he goes above and beyond what is expected of him to assist other members of the department in their responsibilities and ensuring they are safe. 

Please join me in congratulating Animal Control Officer Scherer for being selected as the Quincy Police Department's Employee of the Month.

Robert A. Copley, Chief of Police
