Summary This book analyzes the development and interpretation of mathematical models for patrol operations, resource allocation, and related functions of the police emergency response system. This analysis addresses itself to both administrators and quantitative analysis, and attempts to prove the efficacy of applying quantitative and probabilistic analysis to certain areas of police planning and management. The major topics discussed are patrol operations and allocation, travel time models, preventive patrol models, automatic car locator systems, and intersector cooperation and repositioning.
