APD has 3 shifts - day watch, evening watch and morning watch. It says in the article that the beltline will be patrolled in two shifts, in the day and evening, and then monitored via camera once it closes (at 11pm). Morning watch starts at 10:30pm. I think this means day watch (6:30am or 7:00) and evening watch (until 10:30 or 11:00pm) will patrol so no, there will not be 2 12-hour shifts, there will be 2 8-hour shifts. When the beltline is closed there will not be uniformed police officers patrolling it, but it will be monitored via surveillance camera at the precincts, and they can send a car on patrol out if something is going on.
