Abstract

120 shift rotas of the police were collected and analysed. The frequency distribution of the shift cycles, the duration of shifts, the start and end of shifts, the maximal number of consecutive night shifts, as well as the frequency of different kinds of free weekends, were determined. The shift systems are compared with recommendations for the design of shift rotas which are based on physiological, psychological and social criteria.
