Abstract:

A computer program has been designed for specifying the number of police patrol cars that should be on duty in each geographical command of a city at various times of day on each day of the week. The program is a synthesis of the best features of previous patrol car allocation models, with several improvements, including the capability to prescribe allocations when one tour in each day in each geographical command overlays two other tours. The program was designed to be inexpensive and readily transferable. Author
