ANTI-CRIME LEGISLATION
OVERNOR Lehman, in his message to the Legislature,
urges enactment of the remainder of.the anti-crime
program considered by the Legislature last year.
Among proposed measures specially stressed are the
establishment of a Bureau of Crime Prevention in the
Executive Department, a State Department of Justice
modeled after the Federal Department, and the estab-
lishment, as an experiment, of a Farm Colony or Work
Camp for the detention of alcoholics and vagrants,
under State auspices.
Another recommendation has to do with punish-
ment for murder. Under present law where a murder
occurs during the commission of a felony all those
involved, if found guilty, must be sentenced to death.
The jury has no discretion. While believing that the
sentence for felony murder should continue to be death,
the same as for premeditated murder, the Governor
would empower a jury to accompany any verdict of
guilty with a recommendation of executive clemency
in which case the sentence shall not be death but im-
prisonment for life.
The Governor in his message says:
Last year as a result of the Conference on Crime, the
Criminal and Society, I presented to the Legislature a sixty-
point anti-crime program. A very large part of it is now in
force. It marks the greatest step forward in the fight against
crime.
I wish on this occasion to express my appreciation of the
passage of so many of the bills by the Legislature. Several
of the most important recommendations, however, were not
adopted. I resubmit to your Honorable Bodies for favorable
consideration the remainder of the anti-crime program. Par-
ticularly I wish to solicit your approval of the following mea-
sures:
1. A bureau of crime prevention should be set up in the
Executive Department. Its function would be to assume
leadership in the stimulation, development and coordination
of local crime prevention activities. I view its establishment
as the most vital and necessary measure for an effective long-
range campaign against crime.
2. We should set up a State Department of Justice modeled
upon the Federal Department, possessing broad powers to
cooperate with and assist local district attorneys.- In it should
be placed the Division of State Police and a central bureau of
criminal identification.
3. A system for recruit and in-service training for police.
4. Optional consolidation of local units.
5. Legislation to permit women to serve as jurors.
