Choosing the right shift length for your officer is important in order to improve employee morale, increase officer performance and reduce overtime. The most common shift lengths are 8, 10, or 12 hours. In past studies, officers working 10-hour shifts have reported getting more sleep per night and experiencing a better quality of life compared to an 8 or 12 hour shift. Officers working 12-hours reported more sleepiness and less alertness than 8-hours. The 10-hour shift is seemingly the best shift to minimize officer fatigue.

However, there are some considerations with this shift length. Since 10 does not go into 24 evenly, it means your agency will have some overlapping shifts throughout the day. Though overlapping shifts is good because it gives officers more support, it means double the equipment necessary at one given time. To learn more, check out our blog on
choosing the right shift length

Great question! The process involved in transitioning to new software is a critical task that requires managing the “people side” of change. The most important step is to define the “message” from senior command to the organization. This message should convey why there is a need for change and the benefits of that change. To learn more about how agency leaders can inspire the successful adoption of new technology and overcome the resistance to change, watch this panel discussion.
