RAND Maps Police and Security Worker Concentrations Nationwide

By Matthew Harwood


The point of the maps is to identify which areas are either "underproducing" or "overproducing" security workers.

Dr. Greg Ridgeway, director of the RAND Center on Quality Policing, told Security Management that the maps combined with another center tool, which identifies colleges with criminal justice and related programs, can help police find good recruits.

"We think that between the two tools it might prompt police departments, at least those that are actually hiring these days, on places to target," he said.
