Criminal justice research may require merging disparate data sources that have no common match keys. The Law Enforcement Agency Identifiers Crosswalk (LEAIC) file facilitates linking reported crime data with socio-economic data. It does this by having a record for each law enforcement agency, law enforcement reporting entity, and access identifier for the National Crime Information Center (NCIC). Essentially, if an entity (law enforcement agency or section of a law enforcement agency) is capable of reporting crime information, it is included in the file. The LEAIC records contain common match keys for merging reported crime data and Census Bureau data. These linkage variables include the Originating Agency Identifier (ORI) code, Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) state, county and place codes, and Governments Integrated Directory government identifier codes.

Scope of Study
The Law Enforcement Agency Identifiers Crosswalk (LEAIC) file is primarily designed to apply geographic and government information to records representing law enforcement agencies.
Mode of Data Collection:
Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies, 2008
Uniform Crime Reporting Program: Offenses Known and Clearances by Arrest, 2012
Extract file supplied by the National Crime Information Center (NCIC)
Extent of Processing: ICPSR data undergo a confidentiality review and are altered when necessary to limit the risk of
disclosure. ICPSR also routinely creates ready-to-go data files along with setups in the major
statistical software formats as well as standard codebooks to accompany the data. In addition to
these procedures, ICPSR performed the following processing steps for this data collection:
Performed consistency checks.
Created variable labels and/or value labels.
Performed recodes and/or calculated derived variables.
Checked for undocumented or out-of-range codes.
