This paper summarizes some of the effects of different compressed shift schedules-one entailing four 12-hour days and one having four 10-hour days-in two police organizations. The goal is to investigate whether a compressed shift schedule can be designed to achieve a better balance between work and non-work by changing the starting and quitting times, the number of hours worked, the frequency and number of rotations, the number of days worked, and the number of weekends off.
