The UCSB brown-bag forum on spatial thinking presents

Spatial Partitioning of Police Districts: a Multi-Criteria Model

Miguel Camacho Collados, University of Granada/Spanish National Police Corps/UCLA

12:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 15, 2015 | Phelps Hall 3512 (map)

Liberatore-ThinkSpatialAbstract. The Police Districting Problem (PDP) concerns the efficient and effective design of patrol sectors in terms of performance attributes such as workload, response time, etc. A balanced definition of the patrol sector is desirable as it results in crime reduction and in better service. In this talk, a Multi-Criteria Police Districting Problem defined in collaboration with the Spanish National Police Corps is presented and applied on a case study of the Central District of Madrid.

Miguel Camacho Collados is a mathematician, a police inspector of the Spanish National Police Corps, and a PhD candidate of the University of Granada. Currently he is a Fulbright Grant holder and he is visiting the Department of Mathematics of the UCLA as an exchange scholar under the supervision of Prof. Bertozzi.

The objectives of the ThinkSpatial brown-bag presentations are to exchange ideas about spatial perspectives in research and teaching, to broaden communication and cooperation across disciplines among faculty and graduate students, and to encourage the sharing of tools and concepts.
Please contact Andrea Ballatore (893-5267, to review and schedule possible discussion topics or presentations that share your disciplinary interest in spatial thinking.
