Streets Will Be Closed by Princeton Police Saturday
Princeton Police Press Release: Planned Protest/Counter Protest Event.
Saturday, January 12, 2019.
The Princeton Police are reminding the public that groups taking part this Saturday in planned protests in Princeton’s Palmer Square need to obtain a permit. The event expected to occur this weekend at Palmer Square has caused the Princeton Police to plan the closure of several streets in and around the Palmer Square area on Saturday, January 12, between 9AM and 5PM. This is going to create congestion and expected delays. Motorists are asked to avoid the area.
Princeton Police Chief Nick Sutter is urging groups to obtain a permit. The purpose of the permit is to give us the opportunity to assist you in safely organizing peaceful protests. Protestors may carry signs that are not attached to poles or sticks. No weapons of any kind, glass or plastic water bottles will be allowed in designated protest areas on Palmer Square.
Palmer Square and Hulfish St. will be closed to all motor vehicle traffic beginning at 5 AM on Saturday, January, 12. Nassau Street will be shut down between University Place and Witherspoon St. at 10 AM. Parking along Nassau Street between University Place and Witherspoon Street is reserved for credentialed press vehicles only. Space is limited. Press briefings during the event will occur as necessary and will be held on Nassau Street in front of the Presbyterian Church. (directly across from Tiger Park.)
