Tom Keller is a dirty cop he should not be aloud to carrie a gun or have any type of authority over people. Tom Keller will let people go for simply giving them their drugs that there holding!
I have know of sometimes when tom has let certain woman go for doing sexual favors for him.

someone needs to contact the fbi and the confluence mayor allan gyorko this is terrible. i also know of certain issues that are of the same complaint concerning keller there is an office for the fbi in johstown and pittsburgh. i strongly urge you to do so. i think they might be real interseted in this. thats all im gonna say. ther is alot of dirty and illegal activity he has been involved in what the somerset daily american has said is only the begining as to what is all about to fall in place and if you want something done then you need to report keller to the right authorities. but dont expect to much from the mayor in confluence just read between the lines.its gonna take everyone sticking together and exposing this type of things. hell even his brothers are speaking out against the man whats that tell you?

on behalf of myself and Jim Reckner of harrisburgh pa TOM KELLEER WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND!!!!!!!!!! YOu fabricated stories on a family member of ours just to seek revenge not omly that you lead allen to believe you were A 'victim of lies to sway them to side with you Tom i personaly dont have any use for you and i can see you have not been nominated cop or person of the year. allen backed you up all the way well looks who's in the out house now keller poor tom seems stramge everyone that comes in contact with you theres such a life threatening situation this is the cop noone wants to be stopped by . i think people need to write you up more and file private criminal complaints to the da about you. seeing as the mayor or counsil aren't going to do anything about the way they running that boro. you are nothing but a thug with a badge in my opion. i dont trust you or like you i think you are a worthless piece of shit and so is allen he is your enabler. you people in confluence dont have to pit up with the crap. they have laws that boro has to abide by and certain ways to run and operate a police dapartment. better yet all of you guys need to go a cousil meeting confront them face to face and write it up

Tom Keller is a disgrace to all uniformed police officers in the good old US of A. He is pathetic. He has committed adultery. He couldn't pass the competency test to be a prison guard! Yet someone allowed this degenerate to become involved in law enforcement. The FBI, I guarantee you is going to put his ass where he belongs. You can't go around and make up stories. You can't lie ANYMORE! Everybody knows you for what you really are. When you go to jail, guess what they to cops in jail?! He DESERVES every bit of it. One other thing he is no better guy that had the shoot out with the state police in Berlin, PA. He is ignorant, worthless, and piece of sh*t.

I have a question? I've been reading the blogs on this site and its all the same people badmouthing Chief Keller. I bet $100.00 that most of you have been arrested by him and have been convicted lawfuly in a court of Law!! As a matter of fact one of you is family of the mayor and has been arrested (CB) lol. Officer Keller was sought by another Boro for a seek and destroy mission. To end Police corruption in that town and has headed an investation on the Summit Twp Police. He did his job and he knew he wouldnt be very popular afterwards. Please dont believe everything you read in the paper.

Somone did call the FBI. But it was foud that he did no wrong doing!! The FBI stated the crazy family that filed the complaint just did it because they were pissed because they got arrested!!
And you know the family I mean. The one with the crazy daughter who got that guy from Berlin shot. She told lies about him and he went crazy buy instead of finishing the job he got himself shot. People in this town even sent letters to the Borough Council making request that the family be kicked out of town. But they got evicted!! and now there grandmother has passed and they have no reason to visit Confluence. Well alls they did was show up and steal her money anyways. They were always the talk of the senior center.

from their CRAZY Neighbors and That no-good cop..

The Only Keller could end Poilice corruption is to arrest himself. Summit twp and the suronding police departments want nothing to do with him.

Hey miss know it all Ill bet you that the person making these statements has in the past had a few domestic reports through psp. Not only that I hear tell that a certain person at one time because of substance abuse problems was kicked off the school board for comming to meeting drunk or high. So where do any one u get off. Some of your own nieghbors stated oh aren't they good ones to talk!!! so theres a little bit about yourself so dont hold your head so high. aND HOW ABOUT THE PEOPLE YOU KEPT UP TILL 3 IN THE MORNING FIGHTING. Looks like no one is fooled but you. In fact It was said sbout a few other people being nuts So just for the record thought id bring that to ur attention Furthermore No matter how bad I dislike someone I would never wish death on them so so much for character

hey guess what dumn dumn you actually have to have a hearing to be found not guilty of any charges by the FBI ... and seeing how there has not been one yet i don't know how u can be found not guilty.. and as far as leaving town it was not that they were evicted.. or were requested to leave ... they left for there own sanity because of a bully cop. I bet a $100.000 that Keller would pop on a drug test... besides i went to school with this guy... he was a special student .. who know one that not bright enough to take general courses.. and no one liked him then.
and as far as my sister goes and the berlin man i think everyone should take a moment and ask theirselves what and how they would feel if their loved one was taken hostaged, and seeing a car full of bullet holes and not knowing whether they were alive or dead. how cruel can someone be to use that against someone who has been through that. no matter what may have lead to what happened that night no one , i do mean no one deserves for that to happen.. so tonight when u lay down to go to sleep you ought to be thankful that your family never had to experience that and i pray that they never do. I love my sister no matter what we agree on and what we don't .. but u don't need to bring that up.. that is just so low.

Well I know this!! The entire town know about the Bittingers and the incidents with Keller. Everyone also reads theese blogs. The day Officer Keller got his letter from the Dept. of Justice stating that the investagation was over and he was found to have done nothing wrong the Borough all but put a 6x12 blow-up of the letter on the side of the Comminuty center. And I know this because after reading this site the other nite I asked a few Council members. The letter is on display for anyone who wants to see it.
Here is some advice!! This is the reason people remember you. This is the reason you cant get out from under the "crazy" theme you have with you. and finally this is the reason why know body LIKES you!! But it you just fade away people will forget!! Or you can just keep making a fool of yourself!!( this is good advice!!)

You know I'm sure the Bittingers really don't care
what the people in confluence think of them..and
as far as being Crazy, I really think that you people who Belive Keller is a good cop are the ones who are Crazy. And I also know for a fact the the FBI is not done with Mr.Tom Keller yet.
He will get what he deserves.

u know .. know one ever said confluence wasn't a great place to llve. And i think it would be a even better place to live without keller there. another thing everyone may know about the bittingers , but everyone knows about tom keller too. and would be very careful as to say the fbi is done with keller.
