Attrition is impacting law enforcement at unprecedented levels, and one of the hardest-hit divisions in any agency is patrol. Patrol is the division that sets the standard for the level of customer service an agency delivers to its community. It is the most scrutinized and watched by the public. Patrol is the largest segment of an agency's budget (less a jail) - it consumes the most personnel, the most equipment, and, therefore, the most money. Allocating and scheduling staff to patrol should not be haphazard. It should be thoughtful, careful, defensible, and based on data. As attrition and hiring continue to be challenging, patrol still has a job to do. If and when an agency examines and evaluates its patrol staffing needs, having the correct data will be crucial to defensible outcomes and projections. This workshop helps establish the best metrics to use and the best way to measure workload, setting up defensible analytical findings that can be used to make informed decisions for demand-driven deployment.
