In this paper, the efficiency of the performance of some independent units of police organization was evaluated to optimize the total used inputs and the total produced outputs of each unit. For this purpose, with regard to the efficiency and inefficiency of each unit, based on the location of the units to one another, and also due to the limitations on number and the way of transferring the forces of some units, and using the super effective model, a model was presented to reallocate the inputs of the organization units in order to increase and improve the efficiency of inefficient units and to emphasize maintaining the efficiency of efficient units.
