Annotation: FOURTH PART OF A FOUR VOLUME REPORT EXAMINING THE POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS OF AUTOMATIC VEHICLE LOCATION TO LAW ENFORCEMENT OPERATIONS AS A MEANS OF IMPROVING THE MANAGEMENT OF MOBILE RESOURCES.
Abstract: THIS VOLUME PRESENTS TECHNICAL DESCRIPTIONS AND ERROR ANALYSES OF SIX COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE AUTOMATIC VEHICLE LOCATION SYSTEMS. RELATED SYSTEM PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS AND OPERATIONAL INTERFACE REQUIREMENTS ARE ASSESSED, AND THE VARIOUS CATEGORIES OF AUTOMATIC VEHICLE LOCATION TECHNOLOGY ARE REVIEWED AND THEIR PRINCIPAL CHARACTERISTICS SUMMARIZED. IT IS FOUND THAT THE BENEFITS OF AUTOMATIC VEHICLE LOCATION CANNOT BE FULLY REALIZED WITHOUT AN EFFICIENT DISPATCH SYSTEM, AND THAT SYSTEM PERFORMANCE PARAMETERS ARE UNIQUE TO EACH LAW ENFORCEMENT OPERATION. TWO AREAS WHICH MERIT FURTHER INVESTIGATION AND DEVELOPMENT ARE IDENTIFIED AS A COMMUNICATIONS PROTOCOL RELATED TO OPERATIONAL DEMAND AND SYSTEM DEFINITION GUIDELINES TO ASSIST INDIVIDUAL LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES IN THE DETERMINATION OF SYSTEM PERFORMANCE REQUIREMENTS. FOR ALL FOUR VOLUMES, SEE NCJ-36198 THROUGH 36201. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT MODIFIED)
