The Kansas City Preventive Patrol Experiment began October, 1972 continuing untilSeptember, 1973. The experiment consisted of fifteen patrol areas breaking them up into threesections. In five areas of operation preventive patrol was eliminated and labeled as “reactive”beats. This meant officers only entered these areas to respond to calls for service (PoliceFoundation, 2013). The next five areas of operations were labeled as normal and used for“controls”. The last five areas were intensified by two to three times the normal officer presence(Police Foundation, 2013). The experiment asked four questions: Would citizens notice changesin the level of police patrol? Would different levels of visible police patrol affect recorded timeor the outcome of victim surveys? Would citizen fear of crime and attendant behavior change asa result of differing patrol levels? Would the citizens degree of satisfaction with police change(Police Foundation, 2013)?
