Towson DUI Lawyer

Towson has a population of almost 60,000 residents, and is one of the largest unincorporated cities in the state.  As an unincorporated city, it does not have its own police force or its own criminal and civil court system.  Like all cities and towns in Baltimore County it uses the county Police and Sheriff for all its law enforcement needs.  It is the county seat or capital, and as a result the Circuit Court of is located downtown on Bosley Avenue.  There is also a district courthouse located in the downtown area.   The city is perhaps best known for Towson University, which is the second largest university in Maryland with a student population of over 20,000.  The university has its own police force, the University Police who have the same law enforcement powers as the Baltimore County Police.  The university does take a great deal of proud in having one of the lowest per capita crime rates of any public university in the country, but police still make arrests for a variety of crimes including drug possession, DUI, theft, and burglary.

Towson has a downtown area that is lined with various bars and pubs, and therefore it is a common ground for DUI and drug arrests.  County police officers make a large amount of drug possession and drug arrests in the area.  Common drug arrests include possession of marijuana and distribution of marijuana.  Cocaine and narcotic painkillers are also a common source of arrests in.  There is a large influx of students and young adults in the area, and the lively nightlife of the city leads to police officers targeting downtown for drunk driving arrests.  The Baltimore County Police Department targets DUI crimes in the downtown area throughout the year, but most arrests in the city occur on weekend nights during the school year.
