The US has been of great focus as far as security is concerned, whereby it has undergone many milestones in its endeavors to ensure full security to its populous. Nevertheless, the US is still suffering from high rates of crime and insecurity. The menace of terrorism has been the most outstanding issues as far as homeland security is concerned. The climax of this calamity was evident by the Sept 11 terrorist attack. Based on these phenomenons, there has been every need to come up with an efficient patrol strategy that would help New York Police Department to ensure effective crime fighting tactics, police community relations and advanced anti-terrorism tactics.
