The Law Enforcement Management and Administrative
Statistics (LEMAS) survey collects data from a nationally

enforcement agencies in the United States. Data include agency
personnel, expenditures and pay, operations, community policing
initiatives, equipment, computers and information systems, and written
policies. The LEMAS survey has been conducted in 1987, 1990, 1993,
1997, 1999 (limited scope), 2000, and 2003.
