positories at the Justice Department in Madison. That aspect of communications system is still very much in process.
I think that the conversion from low band to high is well along and will probably be accomplished in another year or two.
For the present, at least, I am taking the position that is a worthwhile expenditure of funds. But I would think very, very carefully about any suggestions that we start to move from high band to some other method of communications subsequent to the completion of the high-band program. I understand that there is already an impetus in some parts of the country to do that and I think that is something we should look carefully at.
Mr. Monagan. Did LEAA provide any radio engineering or other technical assistance to the council during the formulation of the statewide communications policy?
Mr. KELLY. No. They were not requested to do so either, though. Mr. MONAGA. Wouldn't it be in order to request them to do that?
Mr. KELLY. As you may know from a review of the membership of that communications task force, it is heavily weighted with technical people and field people who operate in the area of police communications. That fact is one of the elements that has led to the heavy reliance upon it by the membership of the council. I personally think that with the reorganization of LEAA and the movement to the regional offices of substantial staff, it makes good sense for the States to avail themselves of all the technical assistance they can get. I can tell you now that we have had an LELA technical assistant on computerization from Washington in the State of Wisconsin for the past week negotiating one grant with Milwaukee County because of our concern about being especially careful in the area of computerized data processing and the like in the area of criminal justice.
Mr. MONAGAN. I am glad to hear that because there seems to be an absense of that sort of overall technical assistance in the program.
You have already spoken of your feeling that there would be a change from a concentration on equipment procurement, and that is a matter of great concern to us. It seemed to some of us that there was an excessive emphasis in that field. Therefore, I do not think that we need to go into it to the same extent since you have already stated that you are considering some change.
I would like only to ask this: In the 1970 plan you stated that $393,000 in Federal funds would be spent on communications. You actually awarded $635,000, or 62 percent more than planned. Did you obtain approval from LEA A for this increase?
Mr. KELLY. Unfortunately, I cannot answer that question as a matter of certainty. I can answer it with respect to our present practice that I am familiar with, and that is that any change of that sort, the advice and consent of the regional oflice is sought.
I do not know whether or not you are aware of it, but I have only been the director of the council for about 2 months. I have no recollection of that specific item.
Mr. Monagan. You do not have any record.
Mr. MONAGAN. You certainly have an excellent grasp of this problem, I must say, for the brief time you have been in office. The 1971 plan states that $730,000 will be awarded. Then your projections from 1972 through 1975 indicate more than $S million will be spent for com
munications equipment. Have you requested approval from LEAA for these allocations in 1971 ?
Mr. KELLY. The 1971 plan has been approved by the LEAA, both the regional office and in Washington. So far as the 5-year plan goes, I would say that is very much an open question at the moment.
Mr. MOXAGAN. These are certain specific purchases that we would like to go into briefly. I will ask Mr. Intriago if he will go over those
Mr. INTRIAGO. With regard to the project in Pierce County, Wis., Mr. Kelly, could you tell us what was the amount requested in the grant application ?
