Police patrol district design presents a multi-objective optimization problem with two goals: minimizing workload variation between patrol districts and minimizing the response time for officers responding to calls for service. We evaluate three different methods for scoring district designs: a closed form probability based approach, a discrete-event simulation based on hypercube models for spatial queuing systems, and an agent-based simulation model. We find that all methods provide similardoi:10.1109/wsc.2013.6721626 dblp:conf/wsc/ZhangHBL13 fatcat:m26u4cy22nagjbuksdvxnnopxa
