Chief Herbert T. Jenkins
Chief of Police
City of Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Chief Jenkins:

On behalf of the Atlanta Branch, NAACP, I would like to
commend you for your recent action to assign Negro Policemen to
Motor Cycle Patrol duty.

This latest action on your part is another affirmation of
your expressed view of the utilization of Policamen in every unit
of the department without regard to face.

Needless to say that you are indeed a sincere official who
is dedicated to maintaining the good image that Atlanta enjoys. In
this connection, I have only been back to Atlanta a short time, after
15 years traveling around in the U. S. Air Force, and I must say with-
out hesitation that I am very much impressed with the racial gains
our City has made since embarking on a military career.

The credit for these accomplishments must be attributed to
fair minded people like you and other responsible City Officials.

With kind regards, I am
Sincerely yours,

Ot t®

Rebert B. Palecgen. Bx@c. Secy.
