This is a case study of law enforcement utilizing GIS and 911 CAD data to illustrate challenges and opportunities for staffing and allocation of LE officers. This presentation will walk through the Thurston County Sheriff Office experience of utilizing the Police Allocation Model (PAM) and the GIS presentation of its findings.
We will walk you through: How we collected and transformed the tabular 911 data into spatial data. How the spatial data was then refined to create the inputs needed for PAM. How we answered the questions that PAM brought to light. Finally, preparing the results to be presented to a non-technical, budget and decision-making audience.
