As your Chief of Police, I recognize the important role of community involvement in fulfilling our obligation to protect life and liberty. Our department firmly believes in community involvement, communication and public awareness as tools to foster crime prevention. We encourage every citizen to get involved and interact with the Police Department.

Policing in the 21st century has dramatically changed and the movement towards utilization of technology and improved police practices has made great strides throughout the country. Our department is dedicated to reaching the highest standards of professionalism through policies, procedures, training and technology.

Man Fatally Shot Overnight Inside His Palmyra Residence

Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina and Palmyra Police Department Chief Meghan Campbell announced that a 48-year-old Palmyra man was killed early this morning while sitting in his residence by gunshots fired into the home from outside.

No arrests have been made.

NJ Safe Passing Law: Protecting All Who Share the Roads Takes Effect March 1, 2022

Starting today, the NJ Safe Passing Law (NJSPL) (A5570/S2208) goes into effect. The new law provides clear rules of the road for all motorists about when and how to pass people sharing the road on foot, on bicycles, on scooters, wheelchairs or in other legally permitted ways to travel other than a motor vehicle.

The Safe Passing Law requires drivers to use “due caution” whenever they see vulnerable people on the road. The law states that:

- Drivers must follow all current no-passing, no speeding laws AND move over a lane if there’s one to move into.

- On a single-lane road, drivers must allow at least a 4-foot safety zone when they pass.

- If 4 feet is not possible on a section of road, drivers must slow to 25mph and be prepared to stop until they can pass safely without endangering those sharing the road.

2021 was the deadliest year on New Jersey’s roads in 14 years for drivers, and the deadliest in 30 years for the most vulnerable road users, people walking, cycling, and rolling. The pandemic led to a surge of car and truck traffic on our roads along with increased speeding. COVID also led to more people using the roads on foot or on wheels, by necessity or choice. ”Last year, 704 people were killed on New Jersey’s roads, the highest number since 2007. Driver and passenger fatalities are up 18%, while pedestrian fatalities are up 24%, and cyclist fatalities are up 28%.

Pedestrians need to use sidewalks if they are present, that's part of the crosswalk law. Too many walk or run in the street, sometimes side by side taking up a full lane.

Anything signed by Murphy should be null and void.

His pen is on overload!
