Last year saw organization: changes within tbe force giving it three iiispectors with three areas of responsibility.

Inspector Bill West is charge of the traffic branch at chiding enforcement of traffic investigation of nil aod-run cases and enforcemef of parking regulations. All three men are directly re- sponsible to Police Chief James H. Carpenter, who is re- ipoBBbk to tbe Board of Police and city coun- Witli the arrival in Lethbridge of Morray Sivhan to. serve as t to tbe agent of tbe a torney general, city police need DO longer prosecute casts in court and this leaves the in- spectors with more time to give aining and guidance to -the men under them. Training has been an' impor- tant area with the Lethbridge orce and a three part program of training has been establish- i. The first part is tbe standard recruit training patterned along conventional lines and given to every new member' of the force. This is followed by individual members of incentive training through 21 which tbe Board of Police Com- three high nera pays tuition costs of any course of studies the in- dividual policeman wishes to ake providing the course "en- tances his police career and is approved by the board. In the spring of 1969, the Lethbridge force -developed a new approach to continued in- service training, the third 'part of the overall program. One day per week a portion of the force is relieved of duties to take.part in the training. The first, phase of tbe pro- gram, completed in 1968, in- cluded training demonstra Sons and drill, riot control techniques and use of equip- ment and lectures.on crowd be- havior. For mis training, city police are fortunate to have graduates on their staff from tbe RCMP Canadian Police College, t h FBI National Academy, the U.S. Bureau of Narcotics Train ing School and other polic schools. In addition-to the trainin conducted'by the force itself, course in law enforcement has been established at the Lefh- bridge Community College. Training of police staff has complemented by close contact and co-operation be- ween the rare and the com- munity. This has been done through K news media as- well talks and -programs on youth and the' laws in general, ie criminal code, the liquor the'traffic act and the ju- enile delinquent present ed by the force to the public. Tours and visits at the police station doubled, in 1M9 and of a loan to up- ade the ftcintitt. The K-Bar-Anchor Ranch is home base tar ark is mainly focused on wilding up the ranch and the and within tfae bound- aries. Three dugouts and 37 miks fencing have been completed, so corrals fcr tfae feedlot have been completed with reodily available. The feed- 6t' uses modem feeding equsp- eot and ore seK zeeosv. H n handle head of stock. A tractor, a truck and a snow- mobile are included in me farm quipment. Tbe co-op ended IMtwtth a eficit and dividends were not edared. Gordon Heavy Shields, man- ger of the ranch, said addi- iooal brood cows will be Mugfat, with aitiBciai insem- ination metfaods of breeding be- the force visited Khoots an fce ures, bulletins an pamphlets to present the police story to youth.' The increase, in cases in- volving drugs and drug abuse has offset the encouraging as pects of crime'and'crime pre- vention in Lethbridge in 1969. 'Last year SI 'such complainl were investigated and- 1 youths, male and female, wer charged with multiple charges of trafficking in drugs or il- legal possession. There was one death, five a tempted suicides and a number of hospital eaces resulting from drug abuse. Though illegal-use of drugs and trafficking in drugs hi grown as a problem in Let bridge, city police feel the prevention program has resu ed in less drug there would have been than other Lectures, talks and semma were given to 48 groups, repre- senting some persons, an 650 pamphlets.-were distributee City police officials have pressed the opinion that if pu lie concern and interest con- tinues, 1970 might record fewer tragedies of this kind. After five years, the ranch lopes to concentrate on feedlot operations and keep the herd to about. 300 head of cattle. The co-op wil then be able o give an economic unit of cat- le to shareholders who want to set themselves up m ranching and operations can be super- vised by tfae co-op. Mr. Heavy Shields suggested he co-op could encourage near- ly "land owners" to become shareholders later anil their and could be developed by the cOHOp, or operations could be moved elsewhere on the re- serve. Goodstriker, advisor to the co-op for the beginning years, said for many years In- dians on the reserve have not utilized the land. "Many would lease their land and sit back in a rocking chair and take one third wfafle the paleface .would be taking home tbe cream.'' He said people are starting to utilize tbe grasslands DOW, but many are not equipped to han- dle it or they don't think far enough ahead. A man could ap- proach council and ask for a parcel of land and he would be granted it. All that man would have is the shirt on bis back. "You can't start a farm like that" 20 Apartment Blocks Were Built In The City In 1969 Sunday Library Service Now On Regular Baas By CHRIS PlIHL UeraU Staff Writer Sunday opening of. the Letb- bridge Public Library started on a trial basis the summer of 1969 and has continued as a regular service of tfae library. George Dew, chief Hbrarian said the number of people at- tending Sunday from to 5 p.m. equals tfae number on an average.week night. The north branch library moved its location to the West- minster Shopping Plaza during 1969. Because of this stimulus, increases in both adufc aid ju- venile circulation are reported. Total circulation was increase of books. Back room work for both branches of UK library all done in the main branch li- brary, but there have been only slight changes m staff members and no increases ii number. This is due to lack a working space. The Lerhbridge PubSe Li- brary has the highest per cap- ita book circulation ki After ta. During 1969 enough shelving was added to tbe main brand library to hold more books.' This space is currently being put to use. Circulation of children' booksJ has been decking. Mr Dew attributed this io expand- ing ichool tibrary facilities, ocially in elementary whrriii M, he is d part of be trend in ctamgng chmc- for the library from hone htfing to TCGCMXfa WOO tf- signed work.

The 65 per cent ipcmat of reference w o r k in one year warrants tfae employment of a fufl time reference librarian, said Mr. Dew. Became of lack of space this is impossible.
