Abstract

The primary purpose of this thesis is to aid the Orlando Police Department locate areas of improvement with the effect of reducing the total response time of the Command/Control Center through the application of basic industrial engineering techniques. This work is presented in three major chapters. The first is concerned with the definition of the present operation of the Center, the total scope of each separate function within the Center and the interactions with the general public and other public safety departments. The second chapter develops the studies which provide the input values for the simulation model and the analysis of these parameters through statistical testing procedures. The final chapter states the interpretations of the statistical values and indicates the areas where industrial engineering techniques could best be applied to reduce the total response time of the Command/Control Center. This work was supported bya grant from the Governor's Council on Criminal Justice to the Orlando Police Department.
