I observe that you state that
you have made, a considerable
study of crime as member of
, the parole board and as a dl
. rector of ' the' American Pflson
association, and that you express
doubt that crime would be ma
terially reduced through the 'es
tablishment of a state police, or
our prison population be dv
creascd. You are, of course, en
titled to your opinion .on this
subject, but I wish to remind
you that under the present -system
our penitentiary, which you.
as a ' member qf the board of
control, have administered for
several years past, is now r over
populated to the extent that it
was necessary for the emergency
board to provide funds for addi
tional facilities, and that there
is now a demand for more funds
. for the same purpose. -
"li.it my opinion that the
state police system, efficiently
and effectively administered, will
not only materially reduce the
population : in ' our state prison
but in our county and municipal
Jails, and will avoid theneces
slty for additional prison facil
ities and will reduce taxes.?
