This chapter clearly underlines the strong relationship between the characteristics of the event and police response. Characteristics of the event such as type, structure, severity of violence, prior awareness of the event, and injury to police personnel have an impact on the nature of response of the police. As the relationship between the characteristics of the event and police response is in itself a dynamic process, limited in time and space, there is a need to estimate multiple and interrelated dependence relationship between the variables simultaneously. This is done through Structural Equation Modelling (SEM), a method that takes into account simultaneous multiple relationships.

Keywords:   public event, police response, type of event, structure of event, violence, Structural Equation Modelling (SEM)
