Princeton Police Release Statement Ahead of Saturday March

The Princeton Police have issued a statement prior to an expected march by a white supremacist group this Saturday at noon in Palmer Square. Princeton Police remind the public that groups taking part in planned protests need to obtain a permit. Princeton Police also plan to close several streets in and around the Palmer Square area on Saturday between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. 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 Princeton Police the opportunity to assist people 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 Street will be closed to all motor vehicle traffic beginning at 5 a.m. on Saturday. Nassau Street will be shut down between University Place and Witherspoon Street at 10 a.m.
