Willis considered the Polks de partments a business institution and Mid politic* should be kept out of it. There have been too many instances of efficient police chiefs being kicked out of office after an election of new officials. It re quires some time to train e good police chief, and to fire oae after every election year can only harm the service in the long ran. Because of lew salaries end crooked gelMee, good qualified men ^cannot be attracted into the police •forcee fhd consequently many local law enforcing agencies are unable to cope with the alarming increase In crime. This can only be corrected by an aroused public, Willis sut Many foreign-made firearms falling into the wrong hands, Will is warned the group, is responsible for many crimes, and weapons should he registered for the pro tection of everyone. Willis concluded his address by asking bustnsM men to be on the lookout for forged and fraudulent checks, and posts** were eahilit od before the Ktwenis to shew hew some of criminal* operated.
