Personal experience has shown that most critical incidents are handled by placing officers at locations and leaving them indefinitely until relieved by SWAT with no consideration of the skills and abilities of the individual personnel (such as negotiations trained or patrol rifle equipped) or needs (restroom, meal, or water breaks).

[...] an urban department may want to emphasize fuel economy, ergonomics, and braking while deemphasizing road course, acceleration, and top speed.
Due to the reality of urban sprawl or large rural counties, it is wise to consider pre-staging critical equipment (barricades, emergency supplies, portable generators, rescue equipment) at designated areas away from the centralized station. The group consists of police, fire, emergency medical, hospitals, county health, water works, public works, and RACES (short-wave radio operators) just to name a few.

At the meetings, the patrol members hammer home that the sheriff doesn't have the manpower to cover the entire beach, that owners can impose rules the department cannot, that even resorts that have no teens renting rooms may have trouble on the beach if they don't take precautions against trespassers, and that the steps Goldsmith and Bush recommend each year on security and controlling beach access are ones other property owners have proven to work.
