This experimental field study of the effects of compressed workweeks (fewer
than five days) in policing required significant commitment and cooperation
from police leaders and rank-and-file officers in the two study sites, Detroit (MI)
and Arlington (TX). Few experimental studies in policing have required random
assignment of officers to conditions that could have as significant an impact on their
lives as that of the hours and days they work. These agencies—their leaders, officers,
and police associations—worked diligently to ensure that this study could be
successfully implemented. We acknowledge and applaud the important contribution
they have made in advancing the evidence base in policing research.
