Reinvestment in Bourke
town with a population of 5000 people, that has limited offered to keep its
community occupied. This has led to a lot of residents to result to mischief
and violence, however, the town has had enough and decided that a change is
required. Investment in both more policing and community activities is said to
provide a drastic improvement in the quality of living in the suburb.
system designed here details the improvements that can be made and can assist
in the decision making of whether more money should be invested into policing
or community activities.
population of Bourke remains 5000 for the entirety of this model (for
simplicity). NO births or deaths. NO moving in or out.
will be a delay rate for personal convicted after they leave jail and rehab.
of offenders are released directly back to the community, while the remaining
70% will be transferred to rehab for rehabilitation.
jail sentences are constant at 6 months (for simplicity)
slider allows us to adjust the amount of policing involved in the town so we
can observe the effect of changing police numbers corresponding to amount of crime
committed. Range: 5 – 100.
and Alcohol: contribute to increase violence and crime being committed,
therefore, maybe regulating the number of drugs and amount of alcohol that both
minors and adults consume by police officers. Then hopefully crime can be
reduced and even prevented. Range: 0 -20.
investment: this slider allows us to alter the amount of community investment
that Bourke will invest in. Range: 0 – 1.
Investment: Sporting showed great results and improvements to the quality of
living in Bourke. Keeping youths and adults occupied in rugby teams is a great
time pass and great way to let off some steam for a lot of people. The slider
allows us to observe the effect of these investments on the quality of living
in Bourke. Range: 0 – 1.
Alcohol Slider: 17
sliders set at these numbers, we can observe a constant cycle between residents
altering from jail and home, as the crime commit remains relatively constant
(very slow descent).
police maxed out, the crime rate still remains relatively constant, will slight
decrease but it being so small I can be considered insignificant. From this we
can propose that without alternate activities for the residents of Bourke to
get involved in, reforming and making a change to the suburb will be a very
difficult. Investment into just policing can also be seen as not the best investment

common crime circulating among the adults of Bourke.
Getting captured by the police
Group- Groups formed for the people of Bourke to join. Including development
activities, trade-skill learning classes and sports.
Lifestyle- Adults and youth who have improved themselves because of joining
these community groups and leading a positive lifestyle.

1) 3000 People living in Bourke
2) External Influence - Community groups, Police and Substance abuse
3) 70% of the population are Adult and 30% are Youth
4) Crime- 600
5) Apprehended -
6) Community Group - 300
7) Positive life - 100
8) Jail - 480
Positive Lifestyle lead by the community- Setting
the Community Expenditure to a high 80, policing factor to a medium 50 and
Substance abuse to a low 30 we will see a surge of positive lifestyle.
High Rate of Engagement- An increase
in the Substance abuse variable to 10% shows crime and people in jail increase
but the ratio of people engaged in community groups is much higher.
CRIME RATE (HIGHEST) - If
Community Engagement Expenditure and Policing Expenditure are reduced to zero
the amount of crime increases significantly over time and the amount of people
in jail reduces to near zero.
combination of policing and community engagement expenditure is the best
solution for the people of Bourke.The
policing will gradually reduce the amount of crime and the community
development programs will help create a positive lifestyle.
most effective outcome, an increase in policing is needed as well as
investments in community engagement activities.
