Chief of Police ,
Atlanta , Georgia .
Dear Chief:~e &re receiving from merchants in the
downtown shopping area co~plaints about the everincre sing activities of criminals, both inside and
outside the stores .
'ome of these merchants have
told us they feel that the presence of uniformed
police patrolling these areas would act as a deterrent in the a~ivities of shoplifters, flimflam
artists, till tappers, etc .
At a mooting of our Executive Committee
on yesterday we ··ere requested to write you to ask
if it would be possible to put some uniformed men
on p trol in the downtown shopping areas .
Our Committee feels this would be most
helpful against the continued advance of law
violator, and any assistenoe your Dep rtment can
render long this line will be o t appreci ted by
our m mbers.
Cor ially yours ,
ATLANTA HE~AIL 1 {CHA~TS
