Abstract : The California Highway Patrol maintains a state-wide telecommunications network to satisfy the dual requirements of (1) law enforcement information exchange and (2) administrative message exchange. A description of the existing organization and systems and an introduction into those aspects of telecommunications system analysis which are applicable to CHP requirements are given. As a result of this preliminary analysis it is concluded that the communications network need not follow the line organization, the law enforcement information exchange function should control the network employment, and line switching as currently employed is not acceptable for a real time information system. Finally, an iterative design process intended to result in an effective telecommunications system for CHP is recommended. In this thesis, management policy makers are introduced to those parameters effecting telecommunications system design. In addition, it provides guidance to designers and analysts for the development of a CHP telecommunications system to supersede the existing one. (Author)
