POLICE TRAFFIC RESPONSIBILITIES; MANPOWER REQUIREMENTS, ALLOCATIONS-DISTRIBUTION

A DETAILED ANALYSIS OF POLICE TRAFFIC SYSTEMS DATA AND A SYNTHESIS OF THESE DATA INTO SPECIFIC MANPOWER ALLOCATION MODELS IS PRESENTED. THE INTERMEDIATE MODELS DESCRIBE THE SERVICES AND ALLOCATIONS CHARACTERISTC OF THE STATE POLICE, STATE HIGHWAY PATOL, COUNTY POLICE AND CITY POLICE TRAFFIC DEPARTMENTS. THE GENERAL MODEL PROVIDES A GRAPHIC AND MATHEMATICAL FORMULATION FOR ALLOCATING MANPOWER FOR ALL SYSTEMS IRRESPECTIVE OF THE INDIVIDUAL SITE PROPERTIES AND POLITICAL JURISDICTIONS. THE ACCURACY OF THE JURISDICTIONAL MANPOWER MODELS PREDICTIONS IS THOUGHT TO BE ABOUT 84 PERCENT, WHILE THE GENERAL MODEL PREDICTIONS MAY BE MORE ACCURATE. THE STUDY PROVIDES A REPRESENTATIVE MODEL OF OUTSTANDING POLICE TRAFFIC SYSTEMS AND DOES NOT ATTEMPT TO ABSTRACT A MODEL FOR OPTIMUM ALLOCATION. /AUTHOR/
