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

Dear Chief:-

We ere receiving from merchants in the
downtown shopping area complaints about the evere
incressing activities of criminals, both inside and
outside the stores. Some of these merchants have
told us they feel that the presence of uniformed
police patrolling these areas would act as a deter-
rent in the agtivities of shoplifters, flim flam
artiste, till tappers, etc.

At a moeting of our Executive Committee
on yesterday we were requested to write you to ask
if it would be possible to put some uniformed men
on patrol in the downtown shopping areas.

Our Committee feels this would be most
helpful against the continued advance of law
violators, and any assistence your Department can
render along this line will be most appreciated by
our members,

Cordially yours,

H. Eston Reagan, Executive Vice-President.

Copy to:

Hon. Ivan Allen, Jr., Mayor,
City of Atlanta,

Atlanta, Georgia,
