Seek Court Suit
to Add Qualified
Jews to NY Police

official of a national organi-
zation of Jewish police said
the organization is consid-
ering a court suit to assure
appointment of qualified
-Jewish applicants to the po-
lice force in Nassau County
on Long Island. •
Louis Weiser, , executive
vice president of the Nation-
al Conference of Shomrim
Societies, said the Justice
Department has issued' an
executive order to the Nas-
sau County Police Depart-
ment requiring "affirmative
action" in hiring of addition-
al police. Weiser said that
the order specifically ex-
ludes Jews as a minority.

The order came after the
Nassau Police Commission-
er, Daniel Guidor aimoimced
last July that he Wanted to
make the department more
representative "of the com-
munity it serves" in start-
ing a campaign to recruit
minority group members
and women for the force.

The commissioner also
said an effort would be
made to attract Jewish ap-
paants for the 3,800-mem-
ber force. A department
spokesman said then that 54
police were black, 55 were
Jews and 26 were women.
The Nassau County Plan-
ning Commission reported
then that about five percent
of the county's 1.45 million
residents were blacks. The
Long Island chapter of the:
American Jewish Com-
mittee said about, one-third
of the country's residents
were Jews.
