WEDNESDAY, APRIL 25, 1956 BLYTHEVn.I.E (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE NIN1 Western States Set Up Agency To Combat 'Intercity' Criminals By P. D. ELDRED SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A local hoodlum sees a chance for a profitable robbery. Instead of pulling it himself, he "cases" the job and telephones complete information to friends in a distant city. They fly to the scene, commit the crime and, in a matter of hours, are safely back home. Policemen tab this as one of the* toughest types of crime to solve, They have good files on their loca criminals, but nothing on the out of-towners who did the job. Feder a] agencies do not figure In it be cause it's a "local" crime. Now, after years of effort, offi cers in a. score of Western communities have taken the first con crete step toward creating a super police intelligence network to col lect and distribute information about intercity criminals. It cuts right across state lines. The new agency will be headec by San Francisco's Police Chiel Frank Ahern and will center the California State Bureau Criminal Identification and Inves tigation in Sacramento. 90 Per Cent of Operation "Information is 90 per cent our operation, and this thing is dedicated to furnishing information," Ahern describes H. Twenty-six law enforcement offi cials, representing key cities in the vast area from the Pacific Coast east to the Mississippi River participated in the organizing conference in San Francispo. St.Louis, Denver, Seattle, Las Vegas, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Reno, San Diego and Portland were among them. Ahern estimates It will take two or three months to get the bureau into full operation. This is the first such agency set up by state and local law enforcement groups. Detailed Files Capt. James E. Hamilton, head of the Los Angeles Police Department's intelligence unit, explains tho aim: Local departments always have kept detailed files on the robbers, con men and other underworld characters living in their own city. They know the comings and goings, the habits and the operating methods of these people, but even large intelligence units, such as in Los Angeles, have never had enough information on the floating criminal, the hoodlum with out-of- town connections. The Sacramento center is designed to fill the gap by exchanging information among police departments all over the West; possibly eventually nationwide, with accurate files on criminals everywhere. Local and state officers expect close cooperation with the FBI.
