You can contact Dispatch at 745-4811 to verify that the Palmer Police Department impounded your vehicle. If you are interested in obtaining a vehicle release, you must be the registered or legal owner of the vehicle. Your vehicle must have current registration, and you will need to provide current photo identification prior to release. A vehicle release fee may be required for the towing and storage of the vehicle.
All tickets must be paid either at the Palmer Courthouse Clerk's Office, located at 435 S. Denali St. in Palmer, or you may be able to pay it online at http://courtrecords.alaska.gov/ep/.
Contact PPD at 745-4811. An officer will respond to assist you.
Bring your bike to PPD; the Administrative Assistant will have the registration forms and identification stickers for each bike. The Palmer Police Department does not guarantee that if your bike is stolen or lost it will be recovered by filling out and submitting the registration. No program guarantees a 100% recovery rate. This is just one of the tools we use to assist owners in getting their property back. A good number of citizens that report stolen bikes each year do not have the serial number or good identifying information. Registering your bike not only ensures this information is known but is properly recorded as well. It is beneficial for owners to keep a copy of this information for their own records. The PPD encourages citizens to utilize bike locks or secure their bikes in some other way to deter theft.
Anyone under the age of 18 is considered a juvenile. All juveniles must be home between midnight - 5:00 AM. Exceptions to this are when a juvenile is coming home directly from a place of employment, emergencies, or if the juvenile has written permission from a parent or legal guardian to perform a specific errand and return directly home. Parents and business owners need to remember that they also can be cited for curfew violations by allowing juveniles to be out after hours. For details regarding curfew laws, visit section 9.67 of the Palmer Municipal Code at http://www.codepublishing.com/AK/palmer.html.
State law requires all passenger vehicles allow at least 70% light through the windshield and front side windows. The rear window and rear side windows must allow at least 40% of the light through. Violation of this carries a $150 fine.
Studded snow tires are only legal between the dates of September 15 - April 30 of each year.

Note: Most of the following information was taken directly from the Alaska Court System website. If a person has stalked or sexually assaulted you, or you have been involved in a Domestic Violence incident, you can ask the court to order the person to stay away from you and not contact you. A request for a “protective order” is a civil matter, not a criminal matter. If you want the stalker or assailant to be prosecuted criminally, you need to report the incident(s) to the police.
The first step is to complete the necessary paperwork, which can be found at the courthouse or online at https://akcipowizard.truefiling.com/ if the occurrence is a Domestic Violence situation or http://www.courts.alaska.gov/forms/civ-752.pdf if it is stalking or sexual assault in nature.
Use the Stalking or Sexual Assault Protective Order Packet if the person you want protection from is a friend, student at the same school you attend, neighbor, co-worker, a landlord or tenant, or someone you do not know. You should fill out a Domestic Violence Petition (DV-100) if the stalker or assailant is your spouse or former spouse, parent, grandparent, your child, grandchild, brother or sister, your first cousin, aunt or uncle, nephew or niece, someone who you presently or previously had a dating or sexual relationship with, current or former roommate, or a person related or formerly related to you by marriage (for example a stepparent, stepchild).
If the officer at the scene did not issue one to you, then go to http://state.ak.us/dmv/forms/pdfs/466.pdf to print out a form and for directions on where to send it. If this is not an option, you can stop by the PPD at any time and an Officer would be happy to provide a form to you.
Please go to the website at http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx and click on "File a Complaint" to report the internet crime. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Palmer Police at 745-4811. Please remember there are many different types of fraud being perpetrated on the internet. Do not give out any personal information over the internet to anyone as legitimate companies will not ask for it. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is illegal.
Each year many officers are killed and thousands more are injured while performing traffic related duties. Every stop, even the most common traffic violation, has the potential for danger. There is no such thing as a “routine traffic stop”.
During traffic stops an officer can come across uninsured drivers, drivers with suspended/revoked driver’s licenses, drivers impaired by alcohol and/or drugs, people in possession of illegal firearms and drugs, and drivers and passengers with arrest warrants. These are just a few of the reasons why officers are trained to place a great deal of emphasis on their safety and take a defensive posture at a stop until the risk of confrontation or injury is diminished.
If you are stopped by a police officer, here are some guidelines that both drivers and passengers can follow to help reduce the risk the danger to the officer and get you back on your way.
