Police Recruiters To Seek Negroes in South LOS ANGELES (AP) - A ask force of high-level Los An eles police officers is slated to mbark -within a month on engthy .(our: of Negro colleges n the Deep South. Its mission: o recruit, blafik policemen. Inspector Merton Howe, the apartment's chief of staff, an- ounced the plan Tuesday. He aid the task force would be one between six weeks and two lonths in an effort to "recruit s many black college students ; we possibly can." The idea stemmed from a let- r to Police Chief Edward Dav- from Celes King III, a leader the Los Angeles black corn- unity who heads Ihe volunteer Rumor Control and Information Center. King, who wrote to Davis las Aug. 29 when the latter assumed office, noted that a similar drive a few years ago in white schools of the South brought .in many applicants. Howe said at present only about 5 per cent of the 6,000- man force are Negroes. He added that the search for more would be made in the South because "we haven't been able to recruit enough of the col- egc level minority officers in fls Angeles." He listed two major reasons or the failure locally. "One I've heard is thai mem- bers of the Negro community ostracize those 'who become police officers. Also, with community relations being stressed so much, many minority people with the qualifications can find positions they like better and which pay more elsewhere." Beginning officers receive $755 monthly. . . Howe also disclosed plans to implement another suggestion by King--the establishment of a police complaint center. · It will Be manned, How'e said, by a black, a brown and a white, each empowered to handle the complaints of his own ethnic group. In 1875,' about 15 per cent of he population of Canada's Quebec City spoke English as their native language; that figure, is now down to about 5 per cent.
