Palmyra gets new police chief

Lebanon

The Borough of Palmyra in Lebanon County has a new police chief.

It’s the first week on the job for Andrew Winters, who was most recently a patrol captain in Reading. He spent 17 years there, working in various departments including vice and K9. He also served as a street sergeant and director of training.

But home for Winters is Lebanon County. He graduated from Cedar Crest High School and has some immediate plans in his new role.

“Right now, it seems like I’m going to be updating a lot of things that have some policies and procedures that have been in place for a long time, and just from talking with everybody and just reviewing things, it seems like we’re going to need to update and try to freshen things up, look to be a little more proactive, get out with the community a little bit more,” said Winters.

Previous chief Stanley Jasinski retired at the end of last year after 40 years with the department.
