MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 16 · 1937. IOWA POLICE ON 24 HOUR A DAY BAS'lS PROPOSED W. W. Akers, Investigation Bureau Chief, Asks More Funds. DBS MOINES, m--w. w. Akers, state investigation bureau chief, says his department plans to ask the legislature for enough funds to put state police radio broadcasts on a 24-hour a day basis. . Akers said 24 hour coverage of 85 per cent of the state could'be obtained by : operating the Des Moines station during the night. At present the state's five police radio stations--at Des Moines, Atlantic, Fairfield, Storm Lake and "Waterloo--broadcast only during the day. Station Being: Built. . "We.can,get fairly wide coverage at night with the Des Moines station now^ being built," Akers said. "It will have 1,000 watts power instead of the present 400 watts." . The bureau chief said installation of around the clock state police radio broadcasts would be a "major step in combating crime in Iowa." . He said 80 per cent of all crimes are committed at night and without a constant state police radio service criminals have a chance to get one jump ahead of the law. Need 21 Hour Service. "If we had both day and night service," Akers said, "Iowa sheriffs and peace officers would have a widespread information system to aid them in running down criminals. , "As it is, we may lag behind for four or five hours. During that time, burglars, murderers or bandits in fast moving cars could be far away from the scene of an Iowa job. "If we obtain the funds for 24 hour radio service, the state police system could be in constant two- way radio communication with the police radio systems in surrounding states. Thus officers of a widespread area could be mobilized at a moments notice." Technicians on the state investigation bureau radio staff estimated the night broadcasts could be added at a cost of approximately $5,000 yearly for personnel, power and maintenance.
