Shift Scheduling

Something else I would like to see is developing shift schedules for the department. When creating your agency, you would need to determine what level of staffing would allow for shifts. Patrol shifts range across the U.S. from 8 hour shifts, 10 hour shifts to 12 hour shifts. My agency does 12 hour shifts but has 3 overlapping shifts, a days, evenings and nights. Most county agencies have 2 12 hour shifts from 6-6. The adjustment of manpower levels during the times and shift changes can effect officer availability.
