Yes, they watch the bars, especially the Moose and Legion. They have a black "unmarked" SUV they use too. They park right across the street from the Moose in the Louson Industries parking lot, and think that no one will notice them. I've seen them go through the arking lot at the Legion, get out of their vehicle, and mark cars tires with chalk. Then they come back through to see who is still there. If a car that they had previously marked is still sitting there when they come back, they'll wait on them just around the corner. This morning they had someone pulled off around 5:30 AM on Route 16, just below the Mercersburg Inn. They had the entire lane blocked while they wrote a ticket, and you couldn't see around them to know if it was safe to pass. The Mercersburg PD really needs to find something to keep themselves occupied, rather than destroying the few businesses that are left, and generally harassing the residents.
I appreciate the police aggressively targeting drunk driving.

My neighbor has a friend who was t-boned by a drunk driver, hitting the door where his 5 year old son was sitting. The boy was killed instantly. If the Mercersburg police can prevent something like that happening there, more power to them.
