Abstract

This paper presents a model of urban policing based on deployment by serious crime. The deployment of line officers transitions from a district-based focus on 'keeping a lid on crime' to permanent staging of personnel within hot zones, based on POP intelligence assessment of serious crime characteristics, and carried out inside a model based on command integrity instead of current, highly decentralized (line-level) decision-making. A strategic model for deployment, based on counter-insurgency practices, enables security to be logically tied to long-term areal development and economic reinvestment.
