This weekend the Palmyra Police Officers Association (PPOA) was very busy. On Sunday the PPOA was presented a Pal-Riv basketball jersey for our donation towards the athletes uniforms as the league made its return this year. We were extremely fortunate to be apart of such a great program and want to thank everyone who helped bring back Pal-Riv basketball to our community.

Secondly, on Saturday the PPOA as well as the Riverton Police Department - NJ joined forces to help sponsor and participate in the second annual Spikes for Heart Volleyball Tournament held at the Palmyra High School. This fundraiser, which is run by the Panthers with Heart program, helps raise money for the American Heart Association. The tournament was a huge success and the officers from both departments had fun helping support a great cause.

Thank you for sponsoring this event.

It's game day Palmyra and with that said it’s no surprise that Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest days of enjoying alcoholic beverages. Unfortunately with that said the day brings a major spike in DUI and fatal accidents. Prior to enjoying the big game please designate a sober driver or plan to use one of the many ride services that are available. We ask that no one tonight adds to another tragic statistic and to always have fun responsibly. ... See MoreSee Less
