Abstract: We show that a second countable locally compact type I group with a compact invariant neighborhood of the identity is CCR, and has a Hausdorff dual if and only if its conjugacy classes are precompact. We obtain sharper results if the group is almost connected or has a fundamental system of invariant neighborhoods of the identity. Along the way we show that for a locally compact abelian group $ A$ and a group $ B$ of topological group automorphisms of $ A, A$ has small $ B$ invariant neighborhoods at 1 if and only if $ \hat A$ has precompact orbits under the dual actions of $ B$.
