Time: May 4th, 2021 12:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

“How Many Patrol Officers Do You Need?” This question is often asked by law enforcement agencies. Before this question can be answered, we should ask, ”to do what, exactly?” What is your agency trying to accomplish? Are there issues that can be remedied with the current number of officers? Is there an annexation in the near future that will have an impact on the expected workload? Do officers feel like they are running call to call? Do you have specific response time goals? Are there concerns about declining officer availability and safety due to budget constraints or attrition?
After it is determined what is important, it is necessary to measure the level of service you’re currently providing and then determine specific operational goals for improvement. The first step in the process is to create a picture of the historical patrol workload. What activities consume a patrol officer’s time? How much of their time is obligated compared to unobligated? This workshop establishes defensible, data-driven metrics to use when evaluating patrol workload, why those metrics are important, and how to best measure them.
We’ll explore how these metrics expose when pain points occur, how to help alleviate them, and measure the progress towards your operational goals? We’ll examine how schedule and allocation play a pivotal role in staffing and the likelihood of achieving your goals.
