Consultant Service and Workshop for Law Enforcement Officials, Attorneys and Judges in Central and Eastern Kentucky (Lexington, Maysville, Covington, Catlettsburg, Pikeville, London, Richmond, Harlan, 1967-68).
Eastern Kentucky Univ., Richmond. School of Law Enforcement.
Eight one day conferences on law enforcement problems were set up during 1967-68 on a regional basis in the Kentucky cities of Lexington Maysville, Covington, Catlettsburg, Pikeville, London, Richmond, and Harlan. Police officials, judges, prosecuting attorneys, university faculty, and civic leaders were invited to participate. Total attendance was 462. In addition to participating in the prepared discussions on the announced topics, the officers had the unique advantage of the combined talent, experience, and knowledge of veteran judges and attorneys and of officers from other localities in reaching solutions to special problems. Each program dealt with cooperation of officers and prosecuting attorneys in case preparation; court procedures; officer demeanor in court; the effect of recent court decisions on police procedures; and police-community relations. The most important by-product of the conferences was the realization by law enforcement officers that they could communicate with prosecutors and judges and that such communication could be mutually beneficial. Although attendance was disappointing in some cities, many penalists felt that the favorable impressions gained by attendees would help increase attendance at future conferences of this kind. (ly)
