This ICMA University Online Classroom webinar provides tools to help make informed policy decisions by knowing what to ask of your police departments.
How many police officers do you really need? How well is your police department performing? Are “officers per 1,000” and “number of calls” really meaningful measures?
Join public safety expert, Tom Wieczorek, as he addresses these questions and more. Participants will gain insight into data that will help you rethink the workforce allocation of your police department.
This session will cover how to:
– Understand the difference between “calls for service” and “workload”
– Quantify workloads in police departments by seasonal and weekday variables and identify whether personnel are allocated correctly
– Get the metrics you need from police departments to make staffing decisions
– Learn alternative strategies for handling calls for service
– Establish goals and priorities and know what you need to analyze
– Set measurable goals, identify performance problems, and apply strategies to follow the path of continuous improvement
