Downloadable (with restrictions)! This paper describes the use of the Patrol Car Allocation Model to structure the relationships which exist between the utilization of patrol resources and various measures of performance. The relationships depict the cost vs service trade-offs that are present in patrol allocation . This is the first book to address patrol allocation and deployment in a single source–fully discussing the complexities and factors that impact decision making in this area. This text provides a historical assessment of patrol allocation 5/5(3). A location allocation model for traffic police patrol vehicles in an interurban network was proposed by Adler et al. [24]. The authors investigated the assignment problem of traffic police patrol.

A PATROL CAR ALLOCATION MODEL: BACKGROUND After carefully reviewing all the patrol car allocation programs that had been used by police departments up to late , we designed a general-purpose program that we call PCAM (Patrol Car Allocation Model) []. This model . patrol car allocation system which had been significantly underestimating delays. The NYCPD had routinely relied on its model in creating allocation plans, and the model played a role during the financial crisis of the 's when difficult decisions had to be made about cutbacks on patrol Cited by: The MCD model was designed for use in a computer system that has been disseminated to many police departments in the U.S. to help planners allocate patrol cars among precincts. detected by patrol units; and Larson10 11 developed a model for allocating patrol effort to individual streets. A major difficulty in adapting the original model of Koopman9 to problems where the allocation .
