FROJ.'i :
Johnny H. Robins on
s1rnJECT : Meeting VJith Area O Community Club (Boulevard Area)
The meeting revolved around the idea of better police prote ction
for this area . The citi zens of this area were c ompl aining about the
way the teen - agers were conductinp; themselves in this neighborhood,
by doing such things as loafinr,, gambling on the street, loud cursing,
mugging and robbing . It was explained to them that they had a responsi bility to the community by assisting the ? olice Department in preventing
these kind of things by tryin to work with the parents of these kids
in an effort to curtail this situation .
Lieutenant Perry and Officer Grah am assured them that they would
offer all the ssistance they could, but the idea of a walkinr, police man at this ti,.1e would be impossible, due to the shortage o-'- manpower .
The conclusions the citizens reached are as fol lowing :
1.
To inform the police o fic ial s when ,r ups were loafing on the
str2et during schoo l hours .
2 . Try to work with parents of these tecn- azers by pointing up
their re sponsibilities to them .
3.
Assist the E.O. A. Center in recruiting those 16 - 21 years of
age for Hci f:".hl.Jorhood Youth Corps and Job Corps .
