|Abstract: ||Due to the funding cuts the police are facing there is a growing need for increased resource efficiency. Current methods of officer dispatch do not use all the information available to make an informed decision on the most efficient officer to send to an incident. Automating the police officer selection for incident response can utilize this information to make an informed decision for which officer to send. The tool for selecting an officer described here, consists of mapping, routing, and decision making applications. The decision criteria used is officer availability, predicted possible response time, area coverage, and driving qualification. This increases the chance of selecting the most efficient officer to attend an incident. Through simulation it has been proved that making an informed decision can increase the efficiency significantly over random selection within the proximity.|
