Emergency services have been in existence since the beginning of recorded history, yet most efficient and effective use of resources in this field is still considered an open problem. In this thesis, we explore the challenges involved in police services, and present an approach for determining police force capacity for a given call for service data. We use mathematical programming for modeling police dispatching and shift scheduling, and test our method on real occurrence data.
