SUBJECT: Meeting With Area O Community Club (Boulevard Area)

The meeting revolved around the idea of better police protection
for this area, The citizens of this area were complaining about the
way the teen-agers were conducting themselves in this neighborhood,
by doing such things as loafing, 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 rolice Department in preventing
these kind of things by trying to work with the parents of these kids
in an effort to curtail this situation.

Lieutenant Perry and Officer Graham assured them that they would
offer all the assistance they could, but the idea of a walking police-
man at this time would be impossible, due to the shortage of manpower.
The conclusions the citizens reached are as following:

1. To inform the police officials when froups were loafing on the
street during school hours,

2. Try to work with parents of these teen-arers by pointing up
their responsibilities to them,

3. Assist the E.0.A, Center in recruiting those 16 - 21 years of
age for Neishborhood Youth Corps and Job Corps,
