Police performance and activity measurement



Traditional indicators of police performance are insufficient. Therefore, improved knowledge of how police spend their time through activity measurement provides management information that has the potential to support many critical decisions and processes affecting police agencies. A broad example, from South Australia Police, of the type of information that can be elicited from activity measurement is presented in this paper.
