Staffing Analysis

With the rising budget pressures, police departments across the United States are finding the need to hire and deploy police personnel in an effective manner. This, however, has become an even greater challenge in circumstances where there is a shortage of police personnel. The del Carmen Consulting team members can help address this issue by performing a staffing analysis while employing widely accepted statistical formulas based on calls for service, population density, and growth patterns.  These studies, which focus on uniform personnel, CID, and support staff, have been performed by the firm, for numerous police departments, including the cities of Denton and Houston.
