Konkle stated today that the Indiana Criminal Justice Planning program'"H-4",announced yesterday by ICJP authorities as a 1971 plan for Hoosier communities, is not a State Police program. The Rumor control monitor plan is strictly for cities. Program "H-4", underahead­ ing entitled "Implementation", stated that "Rumor control monitors, individuals who know their • neighborhoods well, will be hired and' will report' to -city officials possible dangerous situations as well as refute rumors in event of civil disorders. This project was funded in Fort Wayne duringl969 and will be continued in that city as well, as expanded to two or ' three other cities along the lines . of the Fort Wayne project." "Konkle stated that it had been his understanding that the plan was basically to provide tele-' phone service whereby concerned .citizens their police agencies with information or to determine ithe credibility of rumors surrounding civil disorder situations; Superintendent konkle expressed belief that this portion of the plan is poorly worded. ''The Plan could have more clearly pointed out that in communities * in times of tension and disorder, city authorities could call on a sort of auxiliary force of concerned citizens to eliminate ru- ' mors 'and aid a city in restoring order." Superintendent Konkle went on to explain that similar programs have already been successfully employed in several communities throughout the Nation. Konkle emphatically concluded that he neither believed in or approved any type of plan or pro-. . gram'; that encouraged neighbor r to spy on neighbor. 135.7; and Ned Kemper, 122; bushel per acre.
