The SARA model is a police problem-solving technique that involves scanning, analysis, response, and assessment. It could be used to examine the events that led up to a riot at a concert.

  • Scanning: This would involve identifying the riot as a problem and setting goals to prevent future such events from occurring.
  • Analysis: This step involves identifying the events that led up to the riot and using data, including interviews with police officers, bystanders, and participants in the riot, as well as video or other data to analyze what came before the event and the event itself. This type uses the data to produce a working hypothesis about why this event occurred.
