New Study on Foot Patrol
Yields Interesting Results
Police and Law Enforcement News
Sunday, November 25

Time and time again we test to find new and better ways to deploy daily resources to get the best return on investment.

The results are seldom surprising.

Whether the metric be reduced crime, a perception of increased safety, or an increase in the  approval rating for the agency, the strategy that is most often found to be the most successful usually involves the same two words: community policing.

In 2009, the Philadelphia Police Department teamed up with Temple University to examine what effect, if any, placing two-man foot patrol teams would have in high crime areas.  From the Courier Post:

What they found was that violent crime in targeted areas decreased by 23 percent during that time as part of what was dubbed the Philadelphia Foot Patrol Experiment. Arrests increased 13 percent while reported drug-related incident detections increased 15 percent.

A full article on the study can be found at the Courier Post.
