Abstract: In a more general form, the following structure theorem is proved. Let G be a locally compact group with small invariant neighborhoods. Then G has relatively compact conjugacy classes if and only if G is a direct product of a vector group V and a group L where L has a compact open normal subgroup K such that L/K has finite conjugacy classes.
