Law Enforcement Incident-Based Statistics
The NCS-X Initiative supports a scientifically selected sample of 400 law enforcement agencies in reporting incident-based crime data to NIBRS in order to produce statistically sound, detailed national estimates of crime known to law enforcement.
This census will provide a complete enumeration of the nation's state, county, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies. Data will be used to produce national-level estimates describing the staffing and functions of these agencies. For more information visit, Law Enforcement Core Statistics on the BJS website.
Basic law enforcement academy training programs vary significantly across the United States. This census will collect data on the characteristics of basic academy training for new recruits in state and local law enforcement academies.
The census will collect information about the work of law enforcement agencies operated by tribal authorities and the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs. The CTLEA is BJS's first data collection to focus specifically on tribal law enforcement agencies.
The survey is a new BJS data collection that will gather national-level data on the extent of law enforcement involvement in the nation's K-12 schools and the typical roles and responsibilities of officers working in these schools.
