The Police Department was housed next to City Hall for almost 20 years before moving into its new facility in 2013. The new Public Safety Building at 305 21st Ave. S. is home to the Princeton Police Department and the Princeton Fire and Rescue Department. Since 2007 Brian Payne has served as Chief of Police.
