Subject: Police Science Degree Program

This is just to let you know that I am working with the National
Council of Christians and Jews through Don McAvoy in an attempt
to obtain some tuition funds for policemen to participate in the
Police Science Degree Program at Georgia State.. The National
Council in some instances provides some assistance for courses
in police-community relations and Don seems to think there is a
chance that we might obtain some help for this program.

I am also working with the Community Relations Service here and
in Washington and with Jim McGovern of the Metropolitan Crime
Commission who is assisting us in determining where other funds
might be available locally.

As soon as L@ Bob Lane in the Police Department gets back from
leave this week, we will attempt to draft a suggested procedure
for granting tuition aid to members of the Atlanta Police Depart-

I would hope that the City might be able to put up funds the first
year for twenty grants to be matched by outside grants for twenty
additional officers. I feel that if we can obtain outside assistance
where the City share would be around 50% that we can reduce
objections which might arise from other employee groups in

City Government.

I will keep you informed.
ee: Mr. Earl Landera
