DPMP has developed a number of models to assist policy-makers in exploring the impacts of a range of policy options. Among its Agent Based Models is SimDrugPolicing, a model designed to explore the relative impact of three law enforcement strategies - standard patrol, hot-spot policing and problem-oriented policing - on an archetypal street-based illicit drug market.
