Patterns of metropolitan policing by Elinor Ostrom ( Book )
5 editions published between 1975 and 1978 in English and held by 301 libraries worldwide
A broad overview of the organization of police services in small-sized to medium-sized metropolitan areas in the united states is presented within the framework of an industry model of service delivery. The industry approach, which views police services from the perspective of producers and consumers, is used to explore the interorganizational arrangements for the delivery of police services. The study utilized a random sample of 80 standard metropolitan statistical areas with a population of under 1.5 million. Data were collected from state sources, individual police agencies, telephone and mail contacts, and personal field contacts; however, data on the quality of police services were not available. Measures of fragmentation, multiplicity, independence, autonomy, and dominance were considered. The industry model of production relationships, illustrated by the service matrix -- data display form -is explained. Direct police services, those which are supplied directly to citizens by police agencies, are discussed in terms of the type of agency which produces them. General area patrol is conducted mainly by municipal and county agencies, and it occupies the largest number of personnel. Traffic control is performed by local agencies as well as state police and highway patrol depending on jurisdiction over the particular street or road. Most local police agencies assign traffic duties to the general patrol officers. While very few small agencies investigate cases of homicide, which are usually covered by the county agencies, minor criminal investigations are handled by local agencies. Auxiliary services (radio communication, adult pretrial detention, entry-level training, and crime laboratory analysis) are not produced by all departments, but are shared between various agencies. Radio communications are provided by about 70 percent of the agencies; frequencies and monitoring are often shared between departments in metropolitan areas. Most areas have only one facility for pretrial detention, which is shared between all of the local agencies. Entry-level training is required by law in most states, with larger agencies requiring a longer training period for their recruits. Chemical analysis and other laboratory work is available to all police agencies, even when they do not have their own laboratories. Many police departments in metropolitan areas share facilities and other auxiliary services, with both formal and informal arrangements for mutual assistance. This report shows that there was more cooperation between agencies than was expected. Evaluative research into alternatives for the division of services is suggested.
