Find closest x number of points

I am trying to find a way to equally distribute 10,000 points amongst 26 fire stations. These points are locations of fire inspections. If there are 26 stations, how would I equally distribute 10,000 fire inspections so that each station has an equal number of inspections to perform?

 

We have tried using closest facility, but it does not equally distribute the number of points per station.

 

We almost need to iterate through each station. Find closest 385 points for station 1, remove those 385 inspection points from the incidents layer, and start back at the beginning for station 2, look for it's closest 385 points, remove those 385 inspection points from the incidents layer....etc.

 

Has anyone ran into this before?

 

Thanks!
