Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 1, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 26-THE LETHBPIDGE December Rise in street disturbances Police resume patrol of troubled areas By ALLAN LEITH HALIFAX Three seven-man groups of plainclothes policemen are ready to begin patrolling troubled neighborhoods in an effort to nip juvenile delin- quency in the bud. A special force of officers was introduced in February and was under the control of Supt. F. F. Fry of the Halifax city police department. The trial program in opera- tion until the beginning of school vacations and then was disbanded because the of- ficers were needed in other areas. Its planned reintroduction was prompted by a rise in street crimes and neighborhood disturbances. Supt. Fry said the original force was made up of six rookie police officers under the supervision of a corporal. The new group will consist of the three seven-man groups and four senior officers for a total of 25 men.

Supt. Fry said some of the children encountered by the original groups were only eight years old. PARENTS GRATEFUL parents really appreciated the work we especially if they had thought their kids were Supt. Fry said. Plainclothes officers patrolled all sections of the city in unmarked cars. In neighborhood where there was a greater possibility of problems the men patrolled on foot. They carried revolvers and handcuffs and were prepared for any difficulty. The first because of its worked staggered hours. But the restructured force will work regular hours in areas that need the patrols. Supt. Fry said the program's main aim is to pre- vent young people from getting into serious trouble with the authorities. He said kids gathered in shopping centres and malls and on streets were all poten- tial sources of trouble. In those areas of the city which need the of- ficers down on general incidences of nuisance by seeking out offenders and returning them to their Supt. Fry said.

SOLVED PROBLEM In the areas where the patrols were used there was little or no increase in problems even after the special force was disbanded in the Fry said. While on their patrols the of- ficers managed to get involv- ed in more serious crimes. In several cases they were able to stop robberies and burglaries on the tips of infor- just because they happened to be in the area. But the prime role of the task force was to watch and warn young people who were potential trouble makers. are completely satisfied with the task force the organization and plann- ing were effective and proved to be of Reintroduction of the patrols with an expanded perspective will hopefully earn the respect that citizens gave the initial task force.
