COMPUTERIZED ALLOCATION OF POLICE TRAFFIC SERVICES - A DEMONSTRATION STUDY - FINAL REPORT
The information system utilized a computer-sensor system to gather, process, store and display traffic flow information from 25 key highway locations in Monroe County, Indiana. The resulting information was provided to a local Indiana state police post for use in conducting traffic law enforcement operations. It was concluded that the system is a highly useful operational tool for traffic law enforcement agencies. It was quickly and enthusiastically accepted by the policy officials and was used regularly in assigning patrols so as to reduce traffic risks. The study recommends (1) the establishment of a continuing traffic resource allocation laboratory utilizing a chtis and (2) the initiation of a program to analyze the unique data base made available by the system. /Author/
