Abstract: Police department's (PD's) performance has become more and more important due to the increase in crimes and their fast spreading. In order to allow improved police services, modern technologies need to be utilized to serve this goal. In this work we are employing a Geographic Information System (GIS) to permit efficient planning, informed decision making and optimal performance, especially in emergencies. GIS creates an efficient database system that is easy to manage, manipulate, analyze, present and update for in action policeman as well as for a planner. All information is provided accurately and it is organized and located geographically in a timely manner. GIS provides a number of specialized tools to help dispatchers collect and relay all kind of information to the officers on the scene of crime, or in a natural disaster when help is needed desperately. The locations of schools, hospitals, gas stations or neighborhoods with different socioeconomic status influences the patterns and rate of incidents (road accident, fire, crime, burglar…etc). Hence, using GIS technology is a must if we need to save time and life. Maps and analysis results provided by GIS can play a major role in reducing crime and improving the effectiveness of the Police activities. In this work, we built a GIS Model for the police stations in the city of Amman, Jordan, as an application to improve their efficiency, especially in emergencies. GIS allows informed decision making and better planning in different ways: relocation, redistribution, initiation of PD's etc. Multiple data sources were used to enrich the built GIS including available and field collected data (remotely sensed data with medium and high resolutions, LandSat ETM+ IKONOS images, and ground control points measured using global positioning systems etc.). A transportation network model was included to help in promoting the efficiency and to employ the state of the arts technologies and local based services in the PD’s work. We analyzed the current locations of PD stations (we call them here PDs) and proposed better locations as well as proposed new ones (Sadoun, 2006; Al-Hanbali and Sadoun, 2006; Sadoun and Saleh, 2005; Saleh and Sadoun, 2006).
