He said that as much as 75 er cent of the tosts In making mprovements can be obtained, Brown, former Judge of the 150th district in San Antonio, said that the council was established in 1968 by Gov. John Conually to act in an advisory capacity in Ihe distribution of Hants for improving law en- lorcemenl and control of crime. The council distributes funds lo almost any type of project if it can be shown that the project will help reduce crime, Brown said. The 22'TOember council is involved in nearly all phases of law enforcement, he said. Brown said the council's reason for existence is centered in three areas:" planning for crime control statcwiue, working with grants to gel the planning off the ground, and providing technical help. Potter County Judge Edward B. Nobles said today that he has no comment about the possibility of Potter County obtaining justice council funds to improved the county jail, but that the matter will be discussed by the County Commissioners Court. The jail was criticized by Sheriff Paul Oaithcr and others after several a jailbreaks last year. Gailher said today if a new jail were built in Amarillo with Criminal Justice Council funds, the jail would have to be available to surrounding counties for their more dangerous prisoners. He said the PRPC was consulting with officers other counties to determine ii they would put up some of the money lo pay for Ihe jail. "There is a lot lo be ilone," Gaither "The counties need to verify If they are interested. If so, then Ihe granl would have to be requested. "Amarillo would be a logical location for a new jail," Gaither said. The money is available, he said, but the counties mus determine if they need a jai and where to put it. City Manager John Stiff said this' morning lhat al present, city officials are just listening to Ihe presentations. "We haven't advanced to tha stage yet," he said, "but we are open-minded to anything that will be efficient and increase the taxpayers' savings." Col. Jim Keith, assistant Amarillo police chief, said tha Chief Wiley Alexander had talked with the PRPC in April 1969 about tlic possibility of having one jail for all prisoners 'arrested in the Amarillo area. But he said that, as far as the police department was con cerned, the need was not a great as it once was due to a recent Supreme Cour decision. The court ruled earlier this week list indijents can't be sent to jail in lieu of fines, i they can't afford to pay. Keilh said many persons cur rently in cily jail are serving out time in lieu of fines. "I doubt the police depart ment will need the facilities i has if 1 understand the decision Company is in Area be higher, he said, were it no for direct distance dialing. 11. D. Schodde, the company's vice president for Texas, said Southwestern Bell, added 300,000 phones to its Texas network last year arid plans to add an etiual number this year. The Bell system has five million phones In the Not only are more phones he ing added, they are also being used more often. Schodde sale the average number of long distance calls per day has in creased by nearly 75,000 from last year. said a record $460 million in Bell expansion wouh be spent during 1971 in Texas "Considering the general economic conditions that prevailed in 1J70, we fee! that our growl! during the year, while less than in 1969. was very good," safc Schoddc. liers Serve The training ii conducted by Harrison, Sgt. 1 C.

"Toe decUlon may put our 'jail out of 7 slid the council is not nteresM in creating a uperelate liw enforcement system. "All we ask yoi: to do Is wfcal you say you will do in tbe ap- lication for the grant. 1 The areas In which the council vorks to control crime are: 1. Determining the problems. 2. Finding out. what Is needed solve the problems, 3. Working on priorities to leet Ihe problems. "We then provide assistance geiting the funding," Brown aid. There are about 10,500 persons in jails in Texas at Ihe resent tims, he said. About ,200 of that number have been rraigned and are awaiting rial. The cost of operating jails can reduced, Brown said, if the olal number in jail Is reduced.
