Dear Chief:
JP
The recent racial disorders which we experienced
h ve , of course, pointed up many things which could have
been done , if we had had the money , and which perhaps can
be thought about for implementation in the very n ar future
if funds permit. A suggestion has been made to me which
I consider exc llent and which I would lik to pass on to
you for your consideration and for som di cussion before
th Polic committee tits next meeting on s ptember 28.
It has b en suggested that for regular duty in
c rt in res of th City, such as Swmnerhill, there b an
inter-r ci 1 program o th t white and Negro offic rs c n
p trol certain sections togeth r . This has many desirable
f atur s, not tom ntion a psychological ffect upon th
re id nts of th community. I know that thi will
it t doubling th pr onnel in certain r
(wh r
t
the pr
nt tim we re u s ing one m n to th c r, tc. )
but it i
om thing that w
hould giv s riou consid r
tion to in ~ertain of th troubled ar as. Wheth r such
should tak th for of patrolling inc rs or on foot is
anoth r matt r which w . will hav to di cu s1 but in any
ev nt it is
good sugg tion if w on obtain the funds
nd oth rw1
make som shift in watches o a to be abl
to cco liah this. I realiz th t i t my h v so
disadv t g •, and I would be very pl sed to h r your vi ws in
