Monday Evening, June 24, 1957. One-Mon Police Patrol Success in Kansas City KANSAS CITY, Mo. — City officials from nearly all parts of the United States are dropping in on Police Chief Bernard Brannon these days to study his "surprising" success with one-man police patrols. Although authorities in many areas claim a man riding alone can't observe properly and is endangered when making arrests, Kansas City officers say their, one- man system is more efficient and safer than the two-man patrol. But one-man patrols were never considered for any reason other than better police protection. The plan is expensive. The controversial system was ridiculed by many officers and citizens when the idea was first adopted by Brannon in 1953, but now policemen and voters applaud the city's lowered crime rate and increased police efficiency. Police Districts Halved. The only complaints came from law-breakers, A notorious burglar recently told police he was leaving town because of "discouraging" patrol activity. In adopting the one-man system, Brannon cut the size of police districts in half, added 24 cars, and changed the color of police vehicles from black to white. Cars patrolling the smaller areas are now equipped with three-way radios for communication between vehicles and have been able to reduce the average time needed for answering complaints to less than two minutes. Brannon is quick to point out that officers aren't exposed to needless danger because of the( one-man system. "His partner n still there," Brannon explained, "but in another car." He *aW riding alone has increased the alertness and morale of patrolmen, who now realize the area they cover is "their baby." They shoulder the responsibility willingly- Records show no injuries or deaths of officers that could be attributed to the one-man system aince the plan was inaugurated. Stringent regulations call for pun. ishmenl of any officer who takes needless chanccB. All officers have instructions to call for assistance before halting • auspicious vehicles, making ar- rcirts, or in any instance where they feel two men can do a better Job than one. Official/* don't claim one-man patrols are best for all cities, but they emphasize tho departmenr.1 250-rnan patrol division IK far more efficient ibat the name number of men would be two men to a car. Kansas City spent an additional *87,000 during the first year of one-man operation, but the in- crt-a»ed protection would have cost $500,000 in salaricB alone for the 12-month purlod had the conventional two-man system been followed. Since a largo portion of the initial cof/l wad for new vehicles, operational fx.pen.stB have tended to level off. Although operational costs have gone up, the important factor i« thai KanxaH City crime rates havo declined. I''B£ records indicate a steady notional crime riife during thu pant four yearn. But while thu national rate ban risen 2fl.:i per cunt, Kansas City crime has rfecr«a«ed 31M for the Humu period, according to Brannon.
