Abstract Presents the results of the Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies, which is conducted every four years and covers approximately 18,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide.

Breakdowns are presented for general purpose agencies, including local police departments, sheriffs' offices, and primary state law enforcement agencies. The report also provides data for agencies that serve special jurisdictions "such as parks, college campuses, airports, or transit systems" or that have special enforcement responsibilities pertaining to laws in areas such as natural resources, alcohol, or gaming.
