    Default LEOs where they usually aren't

    Maybe I'm just getting paranoid from being stuck at home, or maybe I'm only noticing because I'm stuck at home. I saw a Blair County Sheriff's unit patrolling in Altoona last night. They are very rarely seen in the city, unless they're picking someone up on a warrant. No traffic on the scanner from them. Then, around lunchtime today, I saw a Greenfield Township unit, in Altoona; not like "going to the hospital" but in a residential neighborhood. Just as they were passing on the avenue, I see APD on the cross street. That's more police units in ~12 hours than I have seen in this neighborhood for months.

    Maybe they know something we don't?

    So you're seeing "more" police activity during times when you were never around to see them before ??

    I had to make three trips to Dubois in the past week, and each time I saw a Sandy Township black Charger parked just north of the westbound off ramp of I-80 onto US 219. One of those times, there was another black Charger parked at the oil change place just south of what used to be the old Holiday Inn.

    Yesterday I saw a State Trooper drive through town heading north. We normally don't see things like that.

    I've never seen a Trooper driving north in my neighborhood! Maybe because he would be in Lake Erie if he did.

    I have worked from home for over a year. My home office has a window where I can see both the avenue and the street, without moving. There is definitely more police activity than normal.

    you might see more units roving, keeping busy because they are not responding to certain unimportant calls now.
    psp issued a bulletin on this and who knows what your county still has the sheriff's doing.
    there is also less traffic around the units now so they stand out more on the road.

    I hear there's a quickly spreading epidemic of non-operational tail lights. The police are out in strong numbers to counter this epidemic, and as a total coincidence, also question drivers about their travels.

    There was a flurry of gunfire this evening around 6pm - then more - and some more.
    The neighbor texted asking if that was gunfire.
    A moment later another bunch of rounds fired. Sure is.

    Mrs EM turned the scanner on.

    Some idiots were engaged in "target practice" not far away in an abandoned property with a "park-like" setting where people go to walk dogs.

    We heard them call in the serial numbers on the guns that they had. (four)
    "The first three came back as "not stolen" - the last one had no info." (paraphrasing that second part)

    That was all I heard. I don't think they were arrested or anything.
