Re: PPD Turning 139
Reference #: 12-PR-0171
This Sunday, August 26th, the Parkersburg Police Department will turn 139 years-old.
Chief Joe Martin has placed a decal on the first cruiser commemorating the day an act was passed authorizing City Council to appoint policemen.
Chief Martin states, “It’s important for us to remember our history. To remember all of the officers who have worked to keep this community safe.”
