Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - April 24, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 1QA The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Wed.. Apr. 24. 1974 Miami Uses Older Citizens For Police Clerical Jobs MIAMI (AP) City officials have hit upon a solution to their effort to get police officers out from behind desks and onto the street: replace them with senior citizens. The city has opened 33 mainly clerical positions in the police department to senior ci- tizens who make up a large part of Miami's population. It plans to hire 66 senior citizens for the jobs, giving each half a day's work. "The idea to use older people came up spontaneously and seemed so logical we used it." Miami City Manager Paul Andrews said Monday. "I think the nation as a whole is groping for ways to use the talents of senior ci- he said. "We decid- ed to try it." Andrews acknowledged the plan, recommended by a senior citizens group, was not without its critics. "A police department is a dynamic place so maybe it's not the best way to conduct research on hiring he said. "But we're trying it." Andrews said he decided to go ahead with the plan after learning that the police department was having trouble recruiting civilians to take over posts formerly held by of- ficers. "It doesn't take a sworn police officer to make sure the practice range has the right he said. "We don't need a trained officer to issue identification cards. Older people can do those jobs." Andrews said the police department would hire the 66 older people within the next few weeks to take over desk jobs such as typists, clerks and office managers. He said two retired persons men or women also would be hired as range masters on the police department's pistol range. Two people would divide one full-time job.
