Annotation: A REPORT ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COMPUTER-SIMULATED MODEL OF POLICE PATROL DEPLOYMENT FOR THE CITY OF BURNABY (BRITISH COLUMBIA).
Abstract: THE MAP OF BURNABY WAS DIVIDED INTO 368 SMALL AREAS CALLED GEOGRAPHICAL ATOMS OR SIMPLY ATOMS. DATA ON CALLS FOR SERVICE WERE OBTAINED DURING A TWO-WEEK PERIOD, AND EACH CALL WAS CLASSIFIED ACCORDING TO TIME OR RECEIPT, NATURE AND ATOM. ANALYSIS OF THESE DATA SERVED AS THE BASIS FOR A SET OF 324 COMPUTER SIMULATIONS IN WHICH THE NUMBER OF CARS, ARRANGEMENTS OF ZONES AND NUMBER OF CALLS FOR SERVICE WERE VARIED. THE SIMULATION RESULTS WERE USED TOGETHER WITH THE DATA ON CALLS TO PREPARE PATROL CAR AND RESPONSE TIME FORECASTING TABLES. SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVING PATROL OPERATIONS WERE MADE.
