A patrol car allocation model by Jan M Chaiken( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This nontechnical report describes the Patrol Car Allocation Model (PCAM85), a computer program to help police agencies determine the number of patrol cars to have on duty in each of their geographical commands. The report indicates PCAM can be used to analyze any policy question related to the number of patrol cars or patrol officers to have on duty as well as the times of day at which patrol cars should begin work. Typical applications of the model are determining the total number of patrol officers a department should have, allocating a fixed number of patrol officers among geographical commands, and assigning patrol cars to geographical commands at the start of each tour. Examples of dispatching practices that cannot be studied using PCAM are listed. PCAM's descriptive capabilities permit displaying quantitative information about any allocation of patrol cars by time of day and geographical command. Prescriptive capabilities specify allocations that best meet the performance standards established by the user. An explanation of data needed to use the program is provided covering geographical commands, patrol car operations, and anticipated number and length of service calls per each for each day in each geographical command. A discussion or resources needed for PCAM considers characteristics of the required computer system, cost, the effort in preparing a data base, and staff requirements. The appendix lists names, addresses, and phone numbers of persons who can provide further information on the model. Twenty-three references are listed
Income guarantees and the working poor in New York City: the effect of income maintenance programs on the hours of work of male family heads by David H Greenberg( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Family Assistance Plan and the President's Commission on Income Maintenance Programs are both proposals which incorporate a negative income tax provision and which are aimed at reforming the present welfare system. This study is concerned with the effect these proposed income supplements will have on work decisions of male heads of families in New York City. More specifically, data from the 1967 Survey of Economic Opportunity and information concerning the labor market and family incomes were used to estimate the likely impact of these programs on work decisions, the costs of the programs, and whether there should be voluntary state or local supplementation of federal payments. Findings of the study include: (1) There is evidence indicating that the hours of work of male heads of families in New York City are more responsive to changes in economic incentives than the hours of work of male family heads in the rest of the nation, and (2) If the Family Assistance Plan is enacted, there will be an appreciable reduction in the supply of low-wage male labor.
