Measuring Police Productivity and Its Effect on Crime

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Issues of crime control and security are of central concern for policy makers at all levels of government. Mayors, governors, and federal officials routinely argue for more spending of scarce dollars to hire officers or otherwise support law enforcement and homeland security efforts. Nevertheless, how police affect crime and enhance security is an area of great debate in criminology (e.g., Levitt, 1997; Eck and Maguire, 2000). In recent years, the San Antonio Police Department implemented a department-wide approach to control crime using its Tactical Response Unit (TRU). This research examines the effect of TRU on various crime types, including felonious assaults, robberies, burglaries, and auto thefts. Specifically, we examine if the activity levels of TRU, measured through arrest, reduce the level of crime. Policy implications related to police resource allocation are discussed in light of research findings.
