The aim of this review will be to assess the state, efficiency and effectiveness of the analysis and management of demand within Police Scotland. It will:
- Test the appropriateness of the approach, including the assumptions made in its development and the use of policing and other data
- Test the alignment of, and consider how demand management drives, informs and links to the Target Operating Model (TOM), the Resource Allocation Model (RAM) and Strategic Workforce Plan (SWP)
- Examine how the application of demand information is used to support business-as-usual tasking and co-ordination and resource planning (including quarterly recruitment decisions) to maintain the required level of operational policing capacity; with the right skills mix to cope with demand on policing
- Consider how well the analysis of demand provides projections and forecasts for demand on policing services in the future in terms of securing a sustainable policing model.
