It must be remembered that these official records nnd reports, mncle at. the time when the information was fresh in the minds of tho officers, are of greater value as aids to an investigation than mere rumor, gossip, unqualified opinion or personal bias. In addition, the BakersCleld police department, like the majority of other modern police departments In the United States, has followed the uniform crime reporting system of records as adopted by the International Association of Chiefs of Police and compiled by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Thus we are able t,b compare the record of Bakersfleld with other police departments in the country, Among other types of information, T have analyzed the uniform crime report? for the years 1935-1941, dealing primarily with the part 1 offenses, which are the more Important or major crimes. Part 1 offenses consist of: Murder and non- negligent manslaughter, manslaughter by negligence, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, burglary, larceny (including: division of thefts oC over and under $50 In value) and auto theft. The population Increase for Bakersfield In 1935 to 1941 is estimated at 1.3 per cent per year. The number of crimes in part 1 offenses In 1935 was 1004. The following is the percentage of Increase or decrease over each preceding- year of these total offenses: 1936, Increase 3 per cent; 1937, 3 per cent increase; 1938, 8 per cent Increases; 1939, 11 per cent Increase; 1940, 7 per cent decrease; 1941, 0.2 per cent Increase. (See Exhibit No. 11.) Crime Rale Thus we see an increase of the crime rate to 1939, at which time the upward trend was broken and brought down a considerable amount. The crime rate of a community is properly considered to be a community responsibility. There were certain factors which were causing this crime rate to continue to Increase in Bakersfield, the exact of which cannot be deter- without more comprehensive Neither these factors which caused crime changed, or the police department preventive methods became more successful. On the other hand, we find In other communities the crime rate was also rising over this period, but In other communl- rate did not show decrease In 1940. reasonable grounds polico department efficiency In crime prevention had something to do with breaking the rising rate of Part I offenses. Examinations of the chart (Exhibit No. 11) shows that the greater Increase of crime was due to larceny, especially larceny under $50 in value, which is largely responsible for the total rise in Part I offenses In Bakersfleld. The causes for the larceny increase would necessitate an analysis of these cases during this period of time. The decrease In the crime of larceny In 1940 Is comparable to the decrease In the total offenses in 1940, or 7 per cent. Thus In breaking the larceny rate the total rate was broken. Ordinarily such prevention of offenses is a job of the patrol division. It should also be understood that even minor larcenies are recorded. Bakersfield has had a greater increase in larcenies under $50 In value than has the national rate or other California cities.

NOTICE TO CKKD1TOHS No. 70UO (Continued From Page rato for every other crime Js practically better than many other averages of cities, the statistics suggest a special problem in Bnkernfield. The general pattern of causes of a high rate of minor Inrconicn, as Indicated by the statistics of Bakersfield, la a transient population containing: a. heavy proportion of vagrants and Intligents. The state of California had quite a transient population during these years and Bnk- craCIelcl la geographically located near one of tho main entrances to The average rate in de- larceny for pollen departments in California for 1040 was found to he 5 In 100,000 population, \vhilo in Rakorsftelrt the decrease Is 341 in 100.000 population. This, therefore, would again indicate that tho Bakernflelrl police department efficiency Improved in preventing Ihoso crimes, Auto Theft Decrease, There wns a steady decrease In tho crime of auto theft from 19U5 to 19,19 of about fit per cout. offenKOS went up to 03 per 1940 but were reduced in 1941 1o almost the same level as that of 1939. The reason for the bad year in 1940 Is unknown, but tho cause was corrected or the factors changed. Thus we see a constant record of Increased department efficiency over a period of years. Tho crimes oC burglary remain practically the same each year, with a total decrease of 24 per cent ot 1941 over 1935. On the other hand, this major crimp in tho national rate was increasing more than In Bakersfield. This shows an excellent record of performance for the Bakersfield police department. Tho other major crimes have been kept on such a constant levol for the six yoars that it is not worth going into detail. In comparison with other rates, this shows a record ot efficiency. Thus, by a comparative statistical analysis, it Is shown that tho Bakersfield police department, over a period of six years, has been making a fine record of performance In keeping Its major crime rate down, and, in most cases, better than comparable records in other averago rules, except for petty theft. They have oven begun to whip this problem, AVo must realize that the greater majority of people are more concerned with major crimes than petty theft and the Eakersfield polico department has a record of performance in this field of which it can be justly proud. Breaking tho statistics down from another angle, the following figures show a comparative distribution of Part I Offenses In Bakersfield as compared with the national rato per 100,000 population for 1041: Larceny, Bakersfield, 77 per cent, national rate, 59.7 per cent; burglary. Bakersfield, 11 per cont, national. 21 per cent; auto theft, Bakersfield, 9 per cent, national, 11.9 per cent; robbery, Bakersfield, 1 per cent, national, 3.1 per cent; aggravated assault, Bakersfield, 0.3 per cent, national, 3.1 per cent; rape, Bakersfield, 0.08 per cent, national, 0.6 per cent; murder, Bakersfield, 0.08 per cent, national, 0,3 per cent; manslaughter, Bakersfleld, 0.08 per cent, national, 0,3 per cent. Efficient Performance Thus, In Part I Offenses, Bakersfield has a lower percentage of major crime distribution and rato per 100,. 000 population than Is the national crime rate for all police departments, except in the crime of larceny (largely under $50) which is 17.3 per cent higher. Any police department which can better this national rato except in minor theft cannot be other than efficient In its performance. It should also be remembered that this was during 1 1941, in which the morale of the department was alleged to havo been low, and the prevention of major crimes by patrol system so bad. Another statistical approach which tests the efficiency of a department In a problem which is its responsibility, is the record of crimes cleared by definite standards crimes cleared by arrest which all departments use In the uniform system. This rec- the attached chart and is for Part I Murdor: Bnk (1 crime), na manslaughter cent; cent; cent; cent; be r. arrest. There are for evaluation of crime reporting ord is shown in (Exhibit No. 11), Offenses. Taking the 6-year period of performance, it is found that there Is an almost steady riso In tho per cent oC these offenses cleared by arrest except for the year of 1930. It begins with 21 per cent for 1935 and to 26 per c«nt In 1939. performance drops to 20 In 3940 but comes back to the highest point*in the six years with 29 per cent in 1941. Something happened in 1940 to ruin the performance of the department in solving its important crimes by arrest. Tho best reason seems to be increases Then the per cent Legal Notices NOTICE OF TIME AND PJ.AC HKARINO PETITION No. 37C30 In the Superior Court of the State of California, in and for the County of Kern.

This IB a pattern of what happens to a department under such conditions. But it Is alpo Important to note that aftor Biich a setback tho department came back In 1?41 with a better performance) record than In the whole six years. The 1041 efficiency record In better appreciated when we add to tho total tho number oC crimes committed In previous years and cleared by arrest during this year. This brings tho percentage for tho yenr up to .T3 per cent. In 1040 there was only an additional O.I per cent nnd in 19I!ft a 1 por cont Increase' In the total of crlmow cleared for previous years. Thus a:j por cont shows the actual performance for the yenr. Taking a comparative hnwln with tho national rate of percentage of Part 1 Offenses, cleared by arrest, for 11*40, which Is the worst recent year for Bakersflold, wo havo the following: comparison: orsfleld, 0,0 por cont tlonnl, 87 por cent; Bakersfield (no crimes), national, 83. 4 por cent; rape: Bnkersfiold, 100 por cent, national, 79 por cont; robbery: BakersfioUl, 09 por cent, t nation, 41i pot- cont; aggravated assault: Bakornftold. 100 per cent, national, 74 por cont; burguary: Bukorsfield, 45 por cent, national, 33 por cont; larcony: Bokersfleld, 14 por cent; national. 1!3 por cont: auto theft: Bale- ersfiold. 31 per cent, national, 24 per cont. "Cloarly Aliend" With tho national percentage remaining very oloso for each successive year. It I.M well to note tho 1941 Bakersfield record for crimes cloarod by arrest: Murder, 100 por cont; manslaughter, ino por cent; rape, 100 por cent; robbery, 09 por aggravated assault, 100 por burglary, 4G per cont; larcony, 20 per cent; auto theft, 19 por cent. Thus In comparing the 1941 Bakors- field performance with tho national performance for 1940 tho Bakersfield police department Is clearly ahead In everything except the crime of auto theft. This Is a most outstanding record for solving major crlnios, and anyone who knows police work can tell that such a department Is really efficient. No department with such a record can be charged with incompetency, and no chief heading such an organization can bo charged with Incompetency because a department over a period of time is OB bad or as good as Its leader. Another group of statistics- tells another interesting story. Taking tho monthly record of the department for 1941 in the Part T Offenses, cleared by arrest, we find the following results: January, 25 per cent; February, 20 per cent; March, 12 per cont; April, 15 per cent; May, Ifi per June, 11 por cent; July. 30 per August, 20 por cont; Septem- 38 per cent; October. 79 per cent; November, 47 per cent; December, 17 por cont. We see the department efficiency going down In January to a low for the year In June, which Is a far greater decline than It should be. Something happened to the department in the month of July that caused the department efficiency in solving crimes to start a steady upward cljmb to bring the year total percentage higher than at any time in the past MX years. Tho change had to be within the department and it IB reasonable- to conclude It was duo to some .changes In personnel. There were changes In personnel in the higher brackets oC command of the police department. The detective bureau IB responsible for the solving oC most of those crimes. The fact is that the chief ns administrator of tho department, did bring about certain shifts of personnel when tho record of the department was going downward. Yot the chief Is charged with playing favorites. The. record shows there must have been some merit to the chief's administrative Judgment. Wo can see the effect of tho extra load of the war upon the record of the department In tho solution of crimes, with a drop to 17 per cent in December. On the other hand, It Is found thnt In the month of January, 194U, the crimes cleared by arrest were 42 per cent and In February, 33 per cent. The political attack on the department became wide open In January and tho survey was made in February and March. Thus tho department recovered from the war to ho met by a political attack. My prediction Is that unless the political attack on the polico department Is stopped, tho efficiency record of tho department In important crimes solved may go even lower I than in 1940. No police department can fight off those political attacks and do Us most efficient police work. Results of Attacks Former Chief of Polico Wilson of Wichita, Kan., made quite a study at one time as to the result of political attacks on a police department in terms of the resulting crime losses. He found that tho citizens of the community under such conditions paid for such political attacks In thousands of dollars In crime losses. This Is the general pattern In all communities whore this situation exists. Again wo see a groat record of efficiency In the department In the percentage of convictions of Part I 1940 tho department per cent of those charged, and In 1941, 95 per cent were convicted. Tho record of convictions according to the national percentage for all departments uhowH that In 1940 tho figure Is 72.6 por cont. (The 1941 figures are not published yet.) Tho efficiency of the Bakersfield department In convictions compares very closely to the record of the Federal Bureau of In- vcstlgatlon and tho United States Secret Service. Tills record also Indicates good co-operation between tho other branches of criminal Justice in Bukorsfield or such a record could not exiKt. I havo addod a graph In tho appendix which HhowH tho time distribution of the important crimes in BalfrcrHfield for the your 1941. It shows that the greatest crime load ponk is between 7 p. m. and 10 p. m. The greatest factor tho minor larceny hibit No. :13). The peak crime load In most all cities occurs In the eve- rting. Taking Into consideration the other work load of the department, I find .a reasonable distribution of personnel to meet tho problem. I studied some very comprehensive maps of tho location of traffic accidents and important crimes ' which occurred in Bakersfleld during 1941. While I do not agree with name territorial methods of distribution, from the point of view of police theory, I would hesitate to recommend a change w.hen the department efficiency record Is so high. I believe that any shifts that can bo made to Improve the efficiency o£ the polico department will be made by Chief Powers. . , On tho other hand, the general pattern of tho BtutmticB of major offenses and crimes cleared by arrest demonstrates above all personalities," ru;nor« and political charges that the Bakersfleld police department comparatively very efficient and It has shown a gradual increased im« provement. Thus there can be very little grounds for a charge that the chief of polico Is Incompetent or that the department lacks good momte, Conclusions In accordance with tho objective of this survey, 1 submit herewith my opinion to you na to the merits of the various charges made against tho chief of polico and some members of the polico department. I have made a technical evaluation of tho polico problem in so far as the scope, tiine and money would permit. To complete this report I have had to KO beyond the amount of money allowed for this survey. As stipulated, 1 havo, rendered my opinion as 1 navo seen the problem. Naturally, there is much detail and unsubstantiated information which could not be rendered in thla report at this time and because of the length of tho report. I have endeavored to cover all essential points. All tho charges given mo were admittedly based on hearsay and opinion. I believe some councilman have received much misinformation. My opinion Is that there to a considerable amount of politic* and political bias concerned In the Charges surveyed. The polico department has become a political football for certain community politics and has become the victim of an aggreMtve law enforcement policy. I find the Bakersfleld police department to be efficient on a comparative basis with other police departments of the country. This !• also admitted by their accuser*. Therefore my conclusion must be that Chief Powers Is a competent chlof of police. I do not find any evidence to disprove this conclusion. The survey Indicates that there Is ood morale In the police department, measured by the performance and other evidence. In my opinion, almost the entire department Is loyal and satisfied with the leadership ot Chief Robert Powers, No Cut From Vice I have been unable to discover any reasonable grounds to believe that tho question of who gets a "cut" loads to members of the police department. I have not found any «*!• donee of an existing cut from vice. My opinion on tho other major charges Is contained In the report, but It can be restated that no reasonable evidence has boon found to sustain them. It Is true that T have found some minor problems and failures in the police department which have occurred In the past, I also find that Chief Powers has made some mistakes. But I havo also found that where such problems, failures and mistakes were discovered, a sincere effort has been made to correct them and, In tho more important casea, the corrections have been made. In my opinion he Is a very competent chief of polico and I believe merits such suport. * In the charges made, I believe there is not reasonable evidence to warrant your filing such charges for the purpose of removing Chief Pow* era or some members from the police department. Finally, T can not emphasize tod strongly the political nature of this whole problem. If it continues a» It is at present, the good citizens of the community are going to suffer In the end. The community has a real responsibility in the solution of this problem. . France Will Produce 5000 Planes for Nazis (Associated Press Leaatd Wlrt) LONDON.
