QUINCY, Fla. (WTXL) - The community rallied together on Wednesday to welcome the Quincy Police into their new home. 

After seven years, the Quincy Police have a newly renovated place to work.

A ribbon cutting and ceremony took place to honor those who serve the community.

Officials also handed out awards to those who play a high role in keeping the community safe.

The police are excited about the new location and how it will better help them serve the community. 

"Every man and woman that works for the Quincy Police Department serves the community," said Quincy Police Captain Robert Mixson. "This will enhance our ability to provide service to the community and give the identity back to the men and women to serve the community, the City of Quincy." 

Their new building is located on the corner of Jefferson and Duval Street in Quincy.
