tration. It is of a purely voluntary nature. This system
is actuarily sound. No attempt will be made in this brief
report to set forth the very extensive provisions of this
system.

It is recommended that the Legislature of the State of
California enact legislation that will make is compulsory
for every municipality in this State, that does not already
have a pension or retirement system that substantially com-
plies with provisions of the State System, to place its law
enforcement officers in such system.

By substantial compliance is meant equal benefits and
equal contributions.

Some doubt has been expressed as to the constitution-
ality of such legislation. However, it is my considered
opinion that compulsory membership in the State System
would be legal.

The question of compulsory membership in a pension
system was considered by the California Supreme Court
in 1914 in the case of Shealor vs. City of Lodi, 23 Cal.
2nd 647. In that case, the petitioner, a policeman of the
City of Lodi, sought a pension under the provisions of
a Statute of 1889 entitled "Police Relief, Health and Life
Insurance Fund in the several counties, cities and counties,
cities, and twons of the State." It was contended by peti-
tioner that the Statute made it mandatory for every Muni-
cipality to belong to said Pension System. The Supreme
Court held that the Statute was not mandatory but merely
authorized Municipalities to belong to the System. The
question as to the power of the State Legislature to create
a statewide pension system for Police Officers was not
an issue.

In a dissenting opinion, Mr. Justice Curtis stated what
I consider to he the proper rule of law that is applicable
to such compulsory legislation. Justice Curtis stated on
Page 657 as follows:

"Nor does the act as mandatory legislation violate
Article XI, Section 12, of the State Constitution,

prohibiting the Legislature from imposing taxes for
municipal purposes. While it is conceded that the
duties of police officers are primarily local and muni-
cipal, in maintaining law and order in their respect-
ive communities, it is generally known that many
of the local police officers spend much time and
effort in performing duties in which the state at large
is interested. The general pension plan prescribed
by the act in question was intended to promote, and
undoubtedly would promote, if its mandatory lan-
guage were given effect, a better police service for
the entire state. To the extent such statute has a
state as distinguished from a purely local purpose,
it occupies an intermediate field of legislation and
does not come within the constitutional ban in its
contemplation of the following tests as to 'municipal
purposes": It is for strictly local uses, from which
the municipality and its inhabitants alone would
benefit, or is it for a purpose in which the entire
state is concerned or will benefit? Upon such prem-
ise the case of San Francisco v. Liverpool, etc. Insur-
ance Co., 74 Cal. 113 (15 P. 380, 5 Am. St. Rep.
425), cited in the main opinion herein, is distin-
guished in City of Los Angeles v. Riley, 6 Cal. 2d
621, 623-624 (59 P. 2d 137, 106 A. L. R. 903), to
the effect that while the Legislature is without power
to interfere in the management of purely municipal
affairs, such matters as are of public and state-wide
concern are properly subject to its control. In line
with this observation, the conclusion is inescapable
that to the extent the police forces of the various

ture would with propriety pass the act here involved
and not violate Article XI, Section 12 of the State
Constitution."
In view of the foregoing, I suggest that this Committee
recommend to the Association that the State Pension Law
be amended to make it mandatory for Municipalities that
do not have a comparable pension system to enter the
State System.

Dear Mr. Quigley:

To carry out compulsory participation in the State

policemen, the following Section 20585 to he added at
the end of Chapter 4.5 of the State Employee's Retire-

20585. The governing body of every public
agency which employs local policemen as defined in

board for the inclusion in this sytem of all its local

policemen who are not excluded by Chapter 3, and

who are not members of this system or of a local

retirement system maintained by the public agency.

The effective date of such contract shall be not

later than July 1, 1951.

It may well be that further questions will come up in

the consideration of the matter, but I think that the forC'

going section will accomplish the purpose. If any further

thoughts occur to me, I shall be in touch with you; and if

any suggestions arise when your Association considers the

section, I shall appreciate it if you will pass them

along to me.

On November 9 he submitted to the Resolutions Com-
mittee another communication accompanied by a letter
from Mr. Nelson, date November 5. These will be con-
sidered by the new resolutions committee appointed by
President Raymond T. Wallace, Chief of the Fresno
Police Department. The two above referred to docu-
ments follow:

Our Committe on Welfare and Disability Pensions
met in San Francisco, California, on Thursday, Septem-
ber 16, 1948, prior to the time our Annual Convention
was held in Santa Monica, California, and, as Chairman
of this Committee, I made my report on our recommenda-
tions to the entire body.

At that time, we wanted to find out just how far the
Peace Officers' Association of the State of California
would go toward an Amendment to the Pension System
of the State of California.

I, therefore, requested Mr. Ralph R. Nelson, the Actu-
ary of our City and County of San Francisco Retirement
System, as well as Actuary of the State Employees'
Retirement System of the State of California, to draw
up an Amendment that would include those who are not
covered by any City, County, or other Municipality of
the State of California so that all Police Officers of the
State of California would have some protection.

Enclosed please find a photostatic copy of a letter, which
is self-explanatory, sent to me by Mr. Nelson in which he
recommends that Section 20585 be added to Chapter 4.5
of the State Employees" Retirement Law.

I realize that this Committee is composed of many
Peace Officers who cannot possibly be at a Meeting in
San Francisco, or any other place in the State of Cali-
fornia, at one time, and I, therefore, request of you as a
Member of this Committee, to express yourselves so that
we may know whether you are in favor of presenting
this Amendement to the California Legislature at the next
Session so that it can be acted upon by the Legislature,
or if you are against such legislation.

I am making this request so that our Committee will
be able to turn this Amendment over to the Law and
Legislative Committee of our Association so they may
take action prior to January 8, 1949, so that it may be
introduced by the Members of the Legislature on that
date (the first legislative day of the Legislature) .

I will contact all the Members of the San Francisco
Delegation and request their support on this legislation,
and I believe that every Member of this Committee, if he
feels the same as I do, should do the same in his County
or City, as this will make it easy for the Members of the
Law and Legislative Committee of our Association when
they appear and introduce such legislation.

Dear Chief Quigley:

As promised in my letter of September 27, I talked
today to the office of the Legislative Counsel, particularly
to Mr. Knowles, who I believe answered your letter of
September 17 addressed to Fred Wood. Mr. Knowles
pointed out the Supreme Court decision in the Stockton
case, but I understand that that did not at all pass on the

question of the power of the State to compel retirement
coverage for municipal employees.

I personally think that the only way this question can
be tested, is for someone to go ahead with amendments
to the law compelling participation in the State Employees'
Retirement System, or compelling the setting up of local
systems, and the former procedure, of course, is vastly
to be preferred. If the matter then is taken to court, we
shall find out sooner or later whether it is lawful.

Taking into account the spread of the pension ideas,
and the wide acceptance of the desirability of covering
everybody, I am inclined to believe that the courts would
do everything they could to hold the compulsory law to
be constitutional. I think that retirement coverage should
be extended as widely as possible; and from my experience,
it is extremely undesirable for small units and even units
of considerable sise, to set up their own systems.

I should think that if a compulsory amendment is spon-
sored, it should go further than covering peace officers
alone. There are firemen and miscellaneous municipal
employees who are in exactly the same situation and who
no doubt would be interested in the matter. It may be
that firemen and police would more nearly come within
the jurisdiction of the State, because the maintenance of
these departments is strictly in the general public interest.

I shall be glad to discuss it with you or have any com-
ments you may want to submit, either before or after you
take it up further with your organization. Particularly,
I shall be glad to see any proposed amendment, or even
to prepare it for submission to the Legislative Counsel,
because if these persons are brought under the State Em-
ployees' Retirement Law, it will be the duty of the Board
of Administration of that System and the Staff of the
System to administer the law.

f Continued {rom page 18)

The State of California is erecting a Prison Medical In-
stitution in the Vacaville area, to take care of ailing pris-
oners for our penal institutions. This when finished will
call for the expenditure of $7,000,000.

A city with the activity of Vacaville must have a
Police Department, and that little city has one that is
most efficient and operates with adequate modem equip-
ment.

For many years O. E. Alley was Chief of Police, but
he retired from that position last year and was immedi-
ately appointed city clerk, and is doing a wonderful job
in that position as he did as head of the Police Department.

The man who succeeded him is George Henry Pierce.

Chief Pierce was born in San Francisco on February
26, 1894. He lived in his native city until six weeks after
the fire and earthquake of 1906, when with his parents
he moved to Oakland. His father, John Pierce, was
elected to the Oakland City Council and served for some
years and was known for his honesty, public spiritness
