Abstract:

The advantages of a computerized work scheduling system over manual design procedures are described. It is pointed out that most of the major types of work schedules currently used by law enforcement agencies may be designed with the computerized scheduling system. Features of the schedule subject to control by the designer include distribution of manpower in proportion to the demand for service, periods of days off, periods of on-duty days, watch change conditions, number of on-duty officers, and lengths of assignment to each watch. The procedure for designing a rotating schedule to manning levels for each watch that are proportionate to workload is illustrated. A schedule designed for a 14-man traffic safety unit operating only on the day and afternoon watches is also shown. The type of input information required is listed, and the training and skills necessary to run the schedule design programs are described. The computer costs for schedule design are considered low, with variance according to the number of schedules designed annually and their complexity.
