  • Text: 2 ot ee i ee HARVARD UNIVERSITY August 1, 1967 THE POLICE CHALLENGES AND CHANGES IN ATLANTA by H, T. Jenkins Since the beginning of modern day local government, as we know it, the police power has been the vehicle that enforces the wishes of local officials, The police power is a two-edge sword and when it is misused, it causes local governments to fail to furnish the service that it was designed to furnish all of its citizens, Originally police services were furnished by volunteers and local citizens under the supervision of a Justice of the Peace. This was known as the "hue and cry" system that depended upon the friends and relatives of the victims of crime, to apprehend and prosecute the perpetrators, In 1829 Sir Robert Peale organized the Metropolitan London Police Department and laid the foundation on what is based all metropolitan police systems of the free world today, This was the first time that a local government employed a full time uniform police force and accepted all of the responsibility to prevent crime and to arrest and prosecute all law violators, This system provided for a division of uniform officers, or constables as they were called at that time, to patrol and to furnish a day watch and a night watch, also a plain clothes or detective division,’ ' The duties and responsibilities of the police has changed very little since that time and are designed to maintain the peace and good order, to prevent crime, to protect life and property, to . enforce the law and to guarantee the freedom of the individual, The American cop that you see working his beat today, gets his nickname from the abbreviationof 'Constable of Police". This system has been changed and expanded SBE MoU ety by adding specialized sections, such as police training, traffic control, fingerprinting, crime laboratories, community relations, crime commissions and many others, The greatest deterent to crime and the most effective crime prevention program coma ine the Night Watch and the Day Watch by qualified uniform police officers, The most important function of a police department to successfully meet changing conditions today, are police recruitment and ‘ ‘ police training, Theodore Roosevelt recognized this in 1895 when he was Police Commilastenes of New York City and organized the first police academy, or the first police training program for a local city police department, : ev The police department that has been most successful in.meeting the challenge of today, are those departments that have the best training program, and arc best prepared to meet changing conditions from day to day. The Atlanta Police Department has not been up to full authorized strength for many years, for the simple reason that a young man, who is qualified to meet the high standards of the police fe department is not willing to subject himself to the dangers _ and the hazards of the job, or subjecting himself and his family constantly to investigations, ridicule and criticism, He can earn a better living for he and his family and enjoy a better and f To fill these more pleasant life by following some other vocation, vacancies and to provide the necessary coverage and patrol, the Atlanta Police Department has adopted one-man patrol cars, This is a highly controversial subject and has brought great criticism to the chief of police, This is a subject that is quite often misunderstood and often eeelogey controlled, When a police officer is injured or killed in line of duty, it gets lots of publicity and there are those who sincerely believe the incident would have hea prevented by twoeman patrol cars, but the facts do not support this belief, We adopted the one-man patrol cars for the following reasons: 1, The records, both locally and nationally, will show that more police officers are killed in two-man patrol cars than in one-man patrol cars, 2. Amajority of the calls answered by the police, do not require any action by the police, only require counciling and giving of advice, « 6-= 3, When a police officer needs to call for assistance, he has twice the number of units to call on, and he can get more help quicker than he could epoT ae 4, It is good sound police management that requires an officer to do his own thinking, to use his iniative and imagination, and to develop a higher degree of performance, 5, For the Atlanta Police Department to arbitrarily adopt the two-man patrol, would cause the number of patrol units and the police service to be cut ~1 half, or it would require all police personnel to work seven days per week, instead of five days, To overcome these and other handicaps, the city is soraetee! striving to increase police compensation and fringe benefits, which make police services extremely expensive for the taxpayer, This requires complete cooperation and understanding between the business community and the city officials, The needs and increased demands for additional city services has confronted our city with a large financial problem, This is complicated by the refusal of the state government to allow the city to broaden its tax base, The main source of income for the city is from ad valorem taxes, It is believed by most tax experts that real estate and personal property is already being taxed to its limit, A recent survey by the National League of Cities predicted that American cities will experience a revenue deficiency of 262 billion ' dollars in the next ten years, Crime against property and crime against the person continues to increase year by year, while the protection of life and property becomes more complicated and expensive, There is no common cause for crime, therefore there is no common cure, but a combination of many things, The records will show that most crimes are committed by repeaters, persons who have already been tried and convicted of a similar crime, They have escaped or they are out on bond, or they are on probation or parole, I had an opportunity recently to testify before a Cbngressional Committee that was holding hearings on ''The Safe Street and Crime Control Act", The City of Atlanta supported this act 100%, but I went even further, ' I looked forward to the day when the U. S. Justice Department and the U. S. Congress will say to every city police department, regardless of its size - If your department meets all the professional gendeo ds in police recruitment, police pay, police training, and police supervision, the Federal Government will contribute a percentage of your annual budget -- it should be about 50%. The greatest objections to this is the fear of central or federal control, I was asked reeently in Washington if I was advocating a national police force, Well, I am not advocating a national police force, but the thought of it does not frighten me ‘any more, The Atlanta Police Department devotes most of its time and effort in enforcing state and federal laws, rather than city ordinances, To enforce federal laws, it is necessary to accept a certain amount of federal control and to follow federal procedures, - 10 - We have no choice in these matters now, and personally.I have no objections, The time has come when the best efforts and ae of the federal, state and local government are required to meet the high cost of law enforcement and to check and reverse the trend of increasing crime that we have been experiencing in recent years. We read and hear a lot of criticism directed to the courts, especially to the U, S. Supreme Court, I am not one of those who join in this criticism, Personally I have no criticism of the courts or any of their decisions, for the simple reason that the objectives and the ultimate goals of the courts, and the police, are identical ~- which is - » ll = To maintain the peace and good order -« To prevent crime -- To protect life and property -- To enforce the lawe- And, to guarantee the freedom of the individual, This we can all agree on, Then, the only disagreement between the courts and the police are ~- how we achieve these goals, When the courts and the police disagree, this is an indication to me, that the police are in error and must change their actions accordingly. It is not, however, possible to furnish 100% security and 100% freedom to all citizens of this nation at the same time, Judge Thurgood Marshall recently replied to a 'question from Senator John ‘McClellan that the crime rate in this nation was critical, but it must be fought within the framework of the Constitution, and it must not be reduced at the expense of the freedom of the individual, It appears to me that the courts in some cases might have given freedom of the individual regardless of his conduct, top Salona over all other rights and considerations, I would respectfully suggest that we might take another look at this proposition, The cases that are most frequently discussed are - The Mallory case The Escobedo case The Mapp case and, the Miranda case, There have been many documents and articles written on these cases and a great many speeches made, both pro and con, but friefly this is what happened in these cases, a , -~ 136 MALLORY VERSUS UNITED STATES Mallory was arrested in Washington, D.C. on April 7, 1954, He was detained in Washington jail and charged with rape, After considerable questioning, he admitted the charge, He was later tried and convicted, In 1957, the U. S.Supreme Court reversed the conviction and stated that "A suspect must be taken before a Magistrate without delay. "Any unnecessary delay will invalidate a confession obtained from the accused person prior. to his appearance before a Magistrate," : ' ESCOBEDO VERSUS ILLINOIS Escobedo was arrested in Chicago, Illinois, on January 19, 1960, and was charged with murder, . « 14 He asked for an attorney and his attorney asked to see hink Both were denied, Later he confessed and was tried and convicted, In 1964, the U. S. Supreme Court reversed the conviction and stated "A person has a right to an attorney and the right to remain silent," MAPP VERSUS OHIO Mrs, Mapp was arrested in Cleveland, Ohio, on May 23, 1957, after officers forced their way into her home without a warrant, and found obscene material, The officers denied her attorney exited during the search, nor would they permit Mrs. Mapp to see him, She was later tried and convicted, ~ 15.4 In 1961, the U. S.Supreme Court reversed the conviction and stated that evidence cannot be used in any court if collected in a search and seizure that is unreasonable or illegal, MIRANDA VERSUS ARIZONA Miranda was arrested in Phoenix, Arizona, on March 3, 1963, He was detained in the Phoenix jail and charged with kidnapping and rape, After considerable questioning, he admitted the charge, He was tried and convicted, In 1966, the U. S, Supreme Court reversed the conviction on the grounds that he was not advised of his right to counsel, and the right to remain silent, I cannot agree that these cases have legally handicapped the police in any way. But, I believe we can agree that the changes that these cases required in police procedure has made police work more complicated and much more expensive, because they put severe restrictions ti on custodial interrogation. wo 6: = To completely investigate a case and determine all of the facts prior to the arrest of the suspect, requires more investigators and a great deal more time and effort, but this is legal and necessary to protect the rights of the individual, and in these cases the perpetrator is the individual, The question that disturbs me, and has not been answered up to this point, is, "what about the rights of the victim?" They also are entitled to protection under the law, It is very easy to forget a victim after the first "splash!" of publicity, and after the perpetrator has been identified and taken into custody. All of these are routine police problems that address themselves to good police management, ra | ; | as oe The greatest challenge that has faced a city or a police department especially in the South, has been the social and racial revolution that we have experienced in the last twenty years..oce where custom and tradition versus the law, and in most cases where the federal law and the state law were in conflict or contradicted each other, For many years the American Negro was segregated and discriminated against because of the color of his skin, and kept in a position of secondary citizenship, Segregation was never designed to separate the races, but to keep the Negro in his inferior place; ’ It was written in the law, and it was the law, During these years the principle function of the police was to keep the Negro in his place, = 18 - The President of the United States, the Mayor of the City of Atlanta, Ralph McGill, Editor of the Atlanta Constitution, and many others said this was wrong and must be changed, The U. S,Supreme Court held in many cases that this was unconstitutional and the American Negro was entitled to all the rights and privileges that goes with first class citizenship. In 1945 the courts gave the Negroes the ballot, This was the first time that the American Negro could actually participate in the management of his government, In 1954 the courts held segregated schools to be unlawful and unconstitutional, Perhaps these two decisions effected more people, brought about a greater change in attitude, habits, customs and action, than any other decisions, Between the years of 1958 and 1963 the City of Atlanta received court ‘ orders to desegregate -«

Schell 1726 Fulton National Bank Building Atlanta, Georgia 30303 Dear Mr. Schell: Thank you very much for your letter of July 14th concerning the Joel Chandler Harris memorial Association. Iagree with you that it is disgraceful that any threats have been made against the staff of the Wren's Nest. Iam having a check made to see if it was reported to the Police Department, and, if not, I will ask the Police Department to offer its services to the Wren's Nest asd assist the staff with any threats of this type. If there is any further information you would like concern- ing the city's action, I will be glad to furnish it. Sincerely, Ivan Allen, Jr. IAJr:am ec: Chief H. T. Jenkins Mr. Irving Kaler Mrs. Moses Page -2- times in the past twenty-five years. Without a doubt, the Presidential Panel, on which Chief Jenkins is serving, could use the sort of knowledge that I feel I have at the level of major Negro-population centers-~Negro Press, thought- leaders, opinion-makers and leaders of national and local organizations and institutions, With regard to programming, I have some ideas which would involve the cooperation of the Negro Press and important organizations, with whom I have worked for more than a quarter of a century. I would be grateful to you if you would transmit copies of this communication and attachments to Chief Jenkins and Mayor Allen, Iam sharing a copy with Mr. Jones. Very truly yours, Moss H. Kendrix Director cc: Mayor Allen Chief Jenkins Mr, Jones

GEORGIA 30303 523-6001 July 14, 1967 Honorable Ivan Allen Mayor, City of Atlanta City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mr. Mayor: I enclose herewith a copy of a letter that I have written on behalf of the Executive Board of the Joel Chandler Harris Memorial Association to Eliza K. Paschall. One of the salient reasons for the enclosed reply to the letter of Mrs. Paschall has been the receipt of threats by several members of the staff at the Wren's Nest that it would be stoned or burned unless its visitation poli- cies were changed. I think it rather disgraceful that these dedicated ladies, who are attempting to maintain a memorial to one of the South's outstanding literary figures, should be subjected to such threats and abuse. Acts and conduct of this kind and character do more to promote friction between the races in Southwest Atlanta than can be counteracted by various organizations that are attempting to peacefully integrate the area. On behalf of these good ladies, I call on you, as Mayor of the City of Atlanta, for such police protection as may be necessary to maintain the dignity of their person and property. I am taking the liberty of sending a copy of this letter to Honorable Herbert Jenkins, Chief of Police. Kindest personal regards. Very truly yours, , / / Y f STS :ebk~ Sidney T. Schell ce: Hon. Herbert Jenkins

It would be needless for me to say that we regret the incident to which you refer, and that every effort will be made by the Police Department to determine who the persons were and prevent any other incidents of this type in the future. As to whether you may wish to obtain a permit to carry a protective weapon; this is a decision you will have to make. Personally, I think the Police Department is adequate for the protection of all citizens, Sincerely, Ivan Allen, Jr. IAIr:am

  • Text: September 18, 1967 Mayor Ivan Allen City Hall Atlanta, Georgia Dear Mayor Allen: We are deeply concerned about the fact that a police officer has not been assigned to assist the children in crossing Mt. Paran Road in front of Warren Jackson School, We have contacted Lt. Pendergrast, who is in charge of the School Police Division of the Atlanta Police Department, regarding this matter. He does not feel the necessity of placing a police woman at Warren Jackson School. We, as parents, feel that the safety of our children is being neglected. We can not wait until a child is injured or killed to prove the need for a police woman. Although Mt. Paran Road is not a main thoroughfare, it is a heavily traveled road, and because it is a narrow, winding road with no sidewalks, it is very hagardous for young children to cross without supervision. Many parents have expressed a desire to have their children walk to and from school but they have not allowed them to walk because of this lack of supervision, As residents of the highest tax paying district in the City, we feel justified in asking the police department to act on our request. We need your support in this matter and any help you can give us will be deeply appreciated, Enclosed are (300) three-hundred signed petitions, copies of which are being sent to the police department. Very truly yours, Parents, Warren Jackson School
