S-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moities Thursday, Nov. 10, 1955 25 Peace Officers Meet, Elect & Hear Countryman LOCALS Iowa's controversial Attorne> General. Dayton Countryman, appeared in Algona November 1 at a meeting of the county peace officers association, and aided in the formation of a permanent county organi/ation and election of officers. Among the t w e n t y-f i v e men present were County Alt toi-ney L. Vv. Nitchals, ' Sheriff Ralph Lindhorst, Deputy Sheriff Don Wood, Mayor H. P. Richardson. Police Chief Al .Hoekelrnan, three highway patrolmen, constables, mayors and justices of the peace from all over the county, and a member of the UDM staff. Lindhorst was elected president and Nitchals secretary-treasurer of the county group following a vote which set up the organ- i/ation that will hold regular meetings in the future. Countryman outlined six objectives of peace officers asso' nations during his 30-minutc talk. They are: Liaison with attorney geYieral's office; educational; coordination between unit.s; salaries; developing programs and ideas: and soical. There was no mention of liquor, other than minors drinking beer, in the discussion. Generally speaking, close contact between the attorney general and county attorneys all over the state is important, according to Countryman. He pointed out it was important for peace officers in each county to have regular meetings so they can brush up on laws, giving them greater understanding of them for greater ease in enforcement. A suggestion was made by the attorney general that peace officers in each locality might solve some of their salary difficulties by holding regular association meetings in their town with the city council as guests. Importance of regular meetings was further stressed as a way'for all officers in the county, to get acquainted, thus making it simpler to exchange ideas and pass them on to other county associations. To date, Countryman has visited about one-third of the counties in the state, and his schedule includes visits to every one of the 99. It was pointed out that Kossuth is one of about ten counties that already had a form of county organization. During a question and answer period. Mayor Richardson, Justice C. H. Ostwinkle and Sheriff Lindhorst talked briefly. Ostwinkle was very emphatic m his views, especially the salary set-up for justices. "I put in full time on my job as JP," he stated, "and my pay is figured and based on laws that were written in 1880 or 1885, hardly capable of handling things, as they are with prices the way they are today." Patrolman Tom Sievers, Algona, told of the effectiveness of the peace officers association in Wright County.
