cc it is not a "witch hunt" it is called being proactive. I am not wasting time trying to explain to you because it ultimately does not matter. I am only curious why you do not have a problem with Baldwin Twp. or Whitehall making DUI's which they do you know? Mcneilly and 51 are heavily traveled. I for one want my Twp. PD to keep my neighborhood, children, and anyone else safe and take intox drivers off the road. ~1*

Pitt$983 you can call it what you want but they are on a "Witch Hunt" trying to pull people over to bust them for DUI. Baldwin Township, Whitehall, South Park, Castle Shannon, Bethel Park, Mt Lebo, City of Pittsburgh do more than bust people for DUI's they want criminals out of the areas. Baldwin Borough is only good at busting DUI's.

@cc, we all know by now that your just trying to get some people fired up here with your accusations. You absolutely must have had an issue with BPD to even make such insensitive moronic statements. Why don't you request the list of cases that are resolved, etc. and get facts first before shooting off your mouth. This is public knowledge and the report is given at the council meetings.

Danny cc is not worried about facts or finding out details about arrests. All arrests in Allegheny County are public knowledge and cc could do some research on this accusation but again cc is not worried about facts. I have the ability to look at any department in the county and look at arrests. Lets just say through my research cc is COMPLETELY off base about BPD. But it does not matter what is said or facts that anyone puts on this forum cc's response is the same, "Baldwin is on a witch hunt and is only good at busting DUI's." I expect nothing more.~1*

Like I said way earlier, this is a list of DUI arrest matters, not ALL arrests or all police action. If you recall, DUIs used to be published in the Pittsburgh papers. Now they seem to be published on the internet. Has NOTHING to do with what the sum total of the actions of our police force are.
