Palmyra has two courts, one for the town and one for the village. They have jurisdiction over their respective areas. The town court handles legal matters occurring inside the town but not the village. The village court does the opposite, only dealing with legal matters that occur inside the village. The courts share the same physical location on East Main Street. The village employs a small police force that shares the building as well. Officers of the Palmyra Police Department conduct traffic patrols regularly on village roads. The outside town area is mainly served by the New York State Police and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Department.Law enforcement in Palmyra tends to cite motorists with a variety of traffic violations. Speeding is the most issued. Inside the village the speed limit is 30 miles per hour. Outside the village the speed limit fluctuates between 55 and 45 miles per hour.
Most of the tickets in Palmyra originate from New York State Route 21, New York State Route 31, and County Route 223. NYS-21 (Canandaigua Road / Palmyra-Marion Road) runs north-south through town and is one of the village’s arterial roads. The other would be NYS-31 (Main Street), which runs east and west along the Erie Canal. CR-223 runs east and west on the north side of the Canal, terminating as it meets NYS-21.
