DUI TASK FORCE

Newtown Borough Police Department is an active member of the Bucks County’s District Attorney’s Office DUI Task Force.  Officers from Bucks County Police Departments participate and staff both roving and stationary DUI patrols. The details serve as not only a means to apprehend offenders that are impaired by alcohol, prescription medications or illegal narcotics, but as a high visibility deterrent.  The effort is largely funded by a continuing federal safety grant administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
