Abstract: PRESENTED ARE STUDY DESIGNS FOR USE BY LEAA, REGIONAL AND/OR STATE LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES AND A DESIGN THAT CAN BE USED BY INDIVIDUAL LOCAL DEPARTMENTS TO MONITOR AND EVALUATE THEIR SPECIALIZED PATROL ACTIVITIES. ALL PROPOSED STUDY DESIGNS ADDRESS COST-EFFECTIVENESS COMPARISONS BETWEEN DIFFERENT TYPES OF SPECIALIZED PATROL AND BETWEEN SPECIALIZED AND TRADITIONAL PATROL. RESEARCHERS INDICATE THAT, USING STANDARDIZED MEASURES AND PROPOSED METHODOLOGIES, DATA CAN BE COLLECTED AND ANALYZED FOR ABOUT $16,000 PER YEAR BY A LOCAL DEPARTMENT. COLLECTION AND ANALYSIS OF THESE SAME DATA FOR TWO YEARS WOULD COST ABOUT $420,000 ACROSS 10 PROJECTS, $1,900,000 ACROSS 50 PROJECTS. FOR THE OTHER PARTS OF THIS SIX-PART REPORT, INCLUDING A LITERATURE SEARCH, SELECTED PROJECT DESCRIPTIONS, A REPORT ON PROJECT MEASUREMENT, AN ASSESSMENT OF THE KNOWLEDGE ON SPECIALIZED PATROL, AND A 66-PAGE BIBLIOGRAPHY, SEE NCJ-30380-83 AND 30385.
