The development of an intelligence-based deployment model to enhance Road Policing service delivery: A case study
Submission Date: November 10, 2016 Journal
New Zealand Police’s Southern District (SD) has been facing increasing and competing demands for Road Policing service delivery. Road Policing (RP) was conducted in silos and it was unclear if activities and deployments reflected risk. An intelligence risk assessment was developed that identified the safety risks and priorities across the district, which was compared with current practice. A deployment model was developed to align with risks, allocate staff and resources based on demand and the integration of RP with other workgroups. This model is put forward as an evidence-based means to aligning deployment and resources to risk and shifting demands.
