Developing a Resource Allocation Framework to support more effective police investigations of major crime

    Project: Research

    Project Details

    Project Description

    Given budgetary pressure on resources, the allocation of limited resources to sometimes lengthy and complex criminal investigations can have a major impact on the quality and outcome of those investigations. The project, which is to be conducted with the Crime Department of Victoria Police, will develop an evidence base to study the effectiveness with which resources are allocated to police investigations in response to major crime. This project will take a longitudinal approach to determine the relationships between demand, resources, resource allocation decisions and outcomes and will develop a Resource Allocation Framework by which resource allocations for major crime can be improved.
