Houston, TX (PRWEB) August 20, 2014
EmLogis, a leading provider of automated employee scheduling software, today announced the release of a law enforcement shift scheduling infographic. Based on the results of the “The Shift Length Experiment” study conducted by The Police Foundation, the infographic presents an easy-to-read graphic view of the effects of the 8, 10, and 12 hours shift schedule on various law enforcement agencies. The infographic may be downloaded from the EmLogis Corporate Web Site at: http://www.emlogis.com/law-enforcement-shift-scheduling-download/.
Many law enforcement agencies have been using 12-hour shifts for 20 years or more. Now, some law enforcement agencies are considering returning or have returned to 8 or 10 hour shifts – sparking a great debate amongst law enforcement personnel. Proponents of the 12-hour shift claim that it saves personnel costs, is easier to schedule, and gives officers more money and more time off to spend with their families. Critics of the 12-hour shift cite safety concerns, risk of fatigue, risk of inattention, low employee morale, and stress.
The infographic, presented by EmLogis, is designed to help employee scheduling managers in corrections, law enforcement and other public safety agencies better understand:
- The latest research on shift scheduling
- The pros and cons of 8, 10 and 12 hour shifts
- The impact of various shift schedules on specific groups of law enforcement employees
