Police patrols act as a deterrent to criminal activity. Spatial analysis can help police operations personnel determine where and when to deploy resources to have the greatest impact on crime. Mobile apps can be used to send analyses and alerts to officers in the field. Dashboards can track patrol activities in real time. The chief and command staff can evaluate mission success using Compstat dashboards.
