Reddin Cites Plan To Stop Local Crime By JACK CHAPPELL Thomas Reddin, Los Angeles chief of police, called for more public support and involvement in law enforcement as part of a three-part plan to attack local crime in an address yesterday. He spoke at the Greek Week convocation in Bovard Auditorium. About 70 students heard Reddin outline the problems now facing law enforcement officials. The dilemma, Reddin said, was caused by a national crime rate increasing six times faster than the population; poor public relations for law enforcement agencies; and an increasing shortage of personnel. Los Angeles’ problems are compounded by the large influx of population (50,000 people per year), many of whom are unemployed or unemployable. Citing a Los Angeles crime rate TYR GETS OVER 2000 SIGNATURES Student Body to Vote on NSA Affiliation By MELINDA TONKS The Trojan Young Republican petition to place a referendum on the ballot r*iceining USC's affiliation with the National Student Association has received the necessary signatures and will be presented to the Executive Council at their meeting Sunday night. Richard Shirley, TYR publicity chairman, said that over 2,000 signatures have been obtained on the petitions that were circulated by TYR members. After the Executive Council receives the petition, the signatures must be validated by the Student Body Court. The court, in accordance with Article VIII. Section 2, of the ASSC Constitution, then must return the referendum to the council. Then the council will submit the referendum to the Associated Students. The time limit for such action is three weeks; if approximately 1,750 of the signatures (10 percent of the students) are found to be valid, the referendum will probably appear on the general election ballot on April 3. If the measure is not placed on this ballot, a special election must be held. TYR based the number of signatures needed on last fall's total attendance of 13.620 students. However, approximately 17.500 students are enrolled this semester, so only 1.750 valid signatures are needed. A controversy over the number of signatures needed arose earlier this semester. Since only full-time students are eligible to vote, TYR would have needed only 1,200 names. Knights Will Sponsor Contest However, the newly-formed Student Court ruled that the petition would need 10 per cent of the entire enrollment, making the number needed between 1,800 and 2,000 signatures. Sixteen TYR board members and 25 active members began circulating petitions on Feb. 13, the day after the Executive Council had voted to affiliate with NSA. Since then, Trojan Young Democrats and Students for a Democratic Society have given their support for the TYR petition: they have not taken a position on whether to support NSA affiliation. The Interfraternity Council has also indicated interest in the petition, but it has not taken a position on affiliation yet. A discussion on what position to take will be held about March 16. ASSC President Taylor Hackford, who was instrumental in the passage of the proposal for affiliation with NSA. w’as not surprised when he heard that TYR had obtained the necessary signatures. “Linda Dulgarian (TYR president) and TYR wanted to make an open forum of NSA. Since they are against NSA and its benefits, they want to make a big issue of it. They really don’t care, so after the petition is passed, they won't do anything,” Hackford commented. “I am in favor of the petition itself, but I want the students to be aw'are of the issues and to uphold the decision of the council,” he said. Hackford said the council represents the student body and an affirmative vote would demonstrate this fact. All groups and individuals who are still circulating petitions have been asked to return them before Sunday to Bob Barnwell. 205 Town and Gown, or Mike Yagjian, Tau Kappa Epsilon house. that is rising three times faster than the population, Reddin asked that the community actively move to discourage an anti-law bias present in many peer groups. The 10 to 17 years age group was singled out by Reddin as the most rapidly increasing in major crime activity. This group, he said, commits about 50 per cent of all major crimes. Reddin urged the community to stop making excuses for the criminal. He said the community should say, “We don’t think that you are sick, we don’t think that you are the victim of your social environment, we think you are a criminal and should be punished.” This is the first step of a plan to make crime unattractive to individuals. Making crime harder to commit is Reddin's second step. He said the ^community makes much crime possible by its own laxity. Reddin cited unlocked car doors and careless individuals as examples. “There are places in this city where even I would not go,” he said. The individual who ventures into these places is asking for trouble, Reddin added. Step three involved increasing the chance of being caught for the criminal. The police force is adopting the space-age methods to catch the thief. A Tactical Operations Center has been set up to wage a “war on crime” in Los Angeles. This center will use one of the 16 LAPD divisions to experiment with new crime prevention techniques. In one respect, Reddin said, the police department had retrogressed, and formed a “thief-catcher squad, whose duty it is not to prevent crime, but to catch the criminal.” Saying that the police force was practically useless as a suppressive unit, Reddin again called upon the community to inform and work with law enforcement officers to prevent the crime before it happens. Following Reddin's speech. Tom Ternquist, IFC president, presented him with a check for $500 from USC Greeks to the William Parker Scholarship Fund. READY FOR BLOOD — Fred Lowell catches a glimpse of what is to come for winners of the Red Cross Blood Drive, sponsored by the Knights. A Playboy bunny will be on hand to award the winners. Looking on are Joeff Harding, Knights President and chairman of th« event; Jim Collins, 1966 Skeepstakes winner from the Betas; Bill Blethen. who holds the Arm Service* , Blood Trophy; and Dede Tanton, a Del'a Gam; ia. ... .. — •••—*
