Police To Restrict Parking By Couples

Mayor Beame yesterday ordered the police to chase away couples parked in isolated areas of the city and to record the license-plate numbers in an effort to prevent further shootings by the .44-caliber killer.

The police hope that a three-minute color videotape, featuring Deputy Inspector Timothy Dowd and Detective James Gallagher, to be played at every roll call in each of the 73 precincts throughout the city over the next five days will provide uniformed patrol officers with information that might result in the arrest of the “prime suspect.”
