11 News first told you Wednesday that those on-again, off-again downtown county police patrols are now back on again.
“I think maybe for a few days they thought they had the full complement and decided you know maybe we’ll utilize the county police,” said Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald.
After about a month of assisting city police with downtown patrols, county executive Fitzgerald said county police were told they were not longer needed last week, but days after that, in a surprise and sudden reversal, the city recalled county police.
Sources told Target 11 that the city police administration decided to end the county patrols, without consulting with Mayr Gainey.
When he found out the patrols had been terminated, he immediately stepped in and asked the county to return.
Fitzgerald said they were happy to oblige.
“We will be down there a number of weeks, probably a couple of months,” said Fitzgerald.
The mayor had initially requested county police assistance to deal with a rise in crime downtown, coupled with a growing shortage of city police officers.

Target 11 discovered more than 2600 mail carrier attacks in the United States during the past two years, with 170 arrow keys reported stolen.
But what’s worse, said Frank Albergo, a member of the Postal Police and the head of its national union? This explosion of violence and theft was encouraged by two very bad decisions by his own agency, the U.S. Post Office and the Postmaster General.
“It’s frustrating because I know postal police officers could make a difference. And a lot of this is unnecessary,” said Albergo.
So, what’s the problem?
And how could the U.S. Postal Service allow its own carriers to face this growing danger?
