Annotation: The police department of Santa Barbara, Calif. was used as a model to study the impact of increased commuting by police personnel by the 21st century and to recommend methods that police agencies can use to prevent the potential negative impacts of increased commuting.
Abstract: Santa Barbara was chosen due to its high costs of housing, coastal geography, and historic and current trends related to commuting employees. The policies considered to reduce the negative impact of increased commuting included carpooling for employees commuting more than 15 miles one way; pressuring the city council to implement an equity home loan program; and the provision of priority parking, flex scheduling, and local bed space for commuters. Recommended transition strategies included allowing commuters to use plain vehicles to carpool, developing a city van pool system, and providing local bed space for commuters. Further research is also recommended. Endnotes; 11 references; and appended figures, tables, and methodological information (Author summary modified)
