Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over New Release

Congratulations to the 5 PPD officers along with 36 other officers from across the country who recently became certified as School Resource Officers and are committed to building relationships with our youth and keeping them safe!

At approximately 7:15 am this morning a blocked number called the Palace Cafe making a statement of some sort of explosion. No mention of a bomb. The building and surrounding buildings in a one block radius were evacuated, including the northwest portion of the Courthouse. The Indiana State Police bomb sniffing dog was brought to the scene and searched in and around the areas in question. Nothing suspicious was seen and the dog did NOT alert to anything. The all clear was given at approximately 9:00 am. Anyone with any information regarding this call please notify the Princeton Police Department.

The Princeton Police Department is currently going through a transition to move where the Red Cross is currently located. As this is happening, there will be disruptions with our phone lines and office hours. This will NOT interrupt any services that we offer, as all patrols, investigations, School Resource, ect. are and will remain unaffected. If our phone lines are down, the lines will transfer to Central Dispatch as they would if the office were closed. We will keep you posted as the progress continues. Thank you for your understanding.

Officer Nefty Padilla and Roy Bridges install a new car seat. The Princeton Police Department is now a car seat inspection station and these two are certified car seat technicians. Give us a call if you have any questions and/or needs when it comes to car seats.

We need your help identifying this person who is a person of interest in a theft. If you have any information please call the department at 812-385-3437.

Current road conditions on SR 64 E by F&M, 11am. Side roads are worse. If you don't have to get out please don't. If you must get out, leave early, drive slow using extreme caution, allowing yourself plenty of time to stop. Be safe.

Friday January 19th is the deadline, get your App today!!
