The use of individually assigned patrol cars on and off duty was researched for Rock County, Wisconsin to determine if such a program would increase patrol car visibility while decreasing the crime and accident rates. This research was in response to the public's concern for the lack of rural patrol by the Sheriff Department. This thesis is an analysis and evaluation of the individually assigned patrol car program. The purpose and the project proposal are detailed in Chapter One. The purpose of the project was to evaluate the individually assigned patrol car program for Rock County by reviewing and evaluating the results of five police departments with experience in the program. The five police departments were selected for their experience with the program and documentation of that experience. Chapter Two is a review of the five police department's experience with the program.
