The numbei of Shore Patrol as signed to duty at any one time is based on the number of personnel on liberty, usually one member of the Shore Patrol to 35 men. He stressed that the duty of the Shore Patrol is to maintain or der, aid and assist Navy personnel, and to protect their rights. The Shore Patrol tries to anti cipate trouble and prevent inci dents from arising from unseem ly conduct on the part of Navy personnel. Friday, March 12, 1954 Reports Ta Commandant It ia tiie duty of the Shore Patrol to report to the Commandant con ditions such aa gambling and the illegal sale of alcoholic beverages. Lt. Urech stated that the Shore Patrol has jurisdiction over Naval personnel only while they are on liberty. He stressed that the Shore Patrol tries to maintain friendly relations with civilian authorities. When it is necessary for the Shore Patrol to question a service man, whether he is in uniform or civilian clothes, they must give complete information as to name, rank, ship or station, but the Pa trol ia instructed to be courteous in such instances. Not a Punitive Group Hie Senior patrol officer stress ed that it is not the duty of the Shore Patrol to punish violators. Hie night stick is carried for the protection of the Patrol. They are not allowed to beat up any one they are trying to apprehend. As Lt. Urech humorously put it, “If a man is hurt, he must be sent to sick bay, and the tax payers don’t get their money’s worth. We like to keep our men healthy so they can go to work the next morn ing.” The Shore Patrol has no authori ty over civilians, except to require them to identify service men in volved in a disturbance with civ ilians. The Shore Patrol has no au thority to turn a service man over to municipal, county, or state au thorities. FBI Can Help In certain instances, the Federal Bureau of Investigation can inter vene. The Shore Patrol has the right to testify in cases involving service personnel and civilians. Shore Patrol personnel may be assigned to ride in civilian police vehicles for the purpose of appre hending and taking into custody service men who “break me peace” or are involved in any misdemeanor. It is the sole responsibility of the Shore Patrol in this area to maintain order in Naval Housng Units, such as Sigsbee Park and Peary Court, since the State has ceded all rights to the Govern ment. Cases involving civilians living in the area are referred to Federal authorities. Quelling Disturbances The Shore Patrol has the auth ority to enter private establish ments in the event a disturbance involves military personnel, or in a case such as a riot, where in tervention is for the “good of the community.** Lt. Urech eaid that the Navy take* “action only after careful investigation.” He said that civil ian complaints against Navy per sonnel should be referred to the Shore Patrol, which then notifies the offender’s commanding officer. In turn, the commanding officer investigates the complaint and re commends the proper procedure in the case. Effect ef Draft In dosing, Lt. Urech said that since the Selective Service law be came effective, many men are in the services who would not other wise be a member of any branch of the military, and urged his audience to remember that while “other people’s sons are serving in the Key West Area, your sons may be serving on other bases.” In answer to a question by one of the Rotary members, Lt. Urech said that each command in the area furnishes a certain number of men and that “the reason some of them are small, is because size ha* nothing to do with brains,” and that the Shore Patrol person nel has to b* intelligent enough "Ifcu t t>* wa f IMI turn I hM up all my bills with • \—n frtm CITY LOAN co.r 4 of Key West 2-5681 524 Southard St. J , 't*m' 1 ' ESP gtf iHg H - mBmT ‘SR I CATCH 810 JEWFISH—Now that the weather has cleared, fishing pictures are showing up again.
