Here is a list in Wikipedia that tells us the ratios of police vs civilians in various countries around the world.

I failed to think of any rationale about how those countries determine the number of police personnel in service. I see that some countries have low police personnel but crime is high, others have low crime but the number of personnel is high.

What does the police to civilian ratio depend on?

How do the countries decide how many police they would put into service?
