Johnathan Lewin nominated after meeting of Fire & Police Commissioners; to be voted on

The City of Quincy’s Fire and Police Commission have named a successor to retiring Quincy Police Chief Rob Copley, from among three finalists.

The Commission meeting earlier today, picked former Chicago Police Department officer Johnathan Lewin to be Chief Copley’s successor. He was chosen over QPD Deputy Chief of Operations Shannon Pilkington and Deputy Chief of Administrative Services Adam Yates. The announcement comes after the three took part in a community forum last Thursday night. The trio also conducted interviews Friday with a stakeholder group in the morning and the members of the fire and police commission in the afternoon. The Quincy City Council will vote tonight on the nomination.

Copley’s retirement from the QPD after 42 years, and 18 years as chief, is effective Friday.
