Mayor McGee and Lynn Police Chief Mageary Announce Revisions to the Lynn Police Department’s Use of Force Policy

Mayor Thomas M. McGee and Lynn Police Chief Michael Mageary announced revisions to the Lynn Police Department’s (LPD) Use of Force Policy to align with the Campaign Zero recommendations.

“The widespread call for police reforms and accountability has resonated in the City of Lynn,” said Mayor Thomas M. McGee. “Over the last several weeks, Chief Mageary and I have met to discuss and review the LPD’s Use of Force Policy which resulted in several changes. This is a positive step in the right direction. Meaningful change will require difficult conversations and thoughtful, concrete action. I look forward to respectfully listening to my fellow Lynners as we have the important discussions that will inform how we progress as a community.”

Lynn Community Health Center is now offering testing for COVID-19 to anyone in Lynn and surrounding communities regardless of symptoms or confirmed exposure to COVID-19. You do not have to be a patient of the health center to get a test.

As communities begin to open up from the pandemic lockdown and more people begin to circulate in the community it will be important to keep a close eye on the virus and identify as quickly as possible areas where positive cases may be increasing.  The best way to do this is making testing available to anyone who thinks they may have been exposed, even if they are showing no symptoms.
