Residents should never be afraid to call 911 if they observe any activity they feel is out of the ordinary or suspicious.

During the school year, residents should be aware of the increase in juvenile pedestrian traffic to and from school buses in the morning and afternoon, and obey all traffic laws relating to the school bus stops.

Section 3345 of the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code requires that all vehicles meeting a school bus with red lights flashing are to stop until the red lights are no longer flashing and the children have reached a place of safety. Penalties are a $250.00 fine, 5 points assessed on your driver's license and a mandatory 60 day license suspension.

When in doubt, the best action is to stop and wait until all children are in a place of safety and the school bus red lights are off. If you witness a vehicle passing a school bus, please call the Police Department at 412-341-5937.

We have also seen a continuing trend of juveniles spraying graffiti at numerous locations throughout the Township.

To help residents combat these current crime trends, here are just a few good crime prevention practices you should adopt into your normal daily routines:




Graffiti costs American communities more than $8 billion dollars per year. It is unsightly, hurts property values, drives away new business, and sends the message that nobody cares about the community. Graffiti is every resident’s problem. Here is what you can do to help:

Let’s continue to work together to keep Baldwin Township clean and safe!
