Abstract:This research explores the tactical planning and scheduling of the helicopters for the Dutch Air Support and Aviation Police (LVP). We create a forecast for High Impact Crimes, and determine hotspots. We define a coverage function that determines the expected number of crimes that can be successfully handled by the LVP, taking into account all deployed helicopters that are performing a surveillance flight or provide standby from a base. We define an exact method and a heuristic to allocate the flights and standby periods over the year. We perform several experiments to determine the optimal planning method, and find that we can increase the proximity of the helicopters to High Impact Crimes.
