BJS proposes new data collection: Census of Tribal Law Enforcement Agencies

 

The Bureau of Justice Statistics encourages comments for 60 days until June 9, 2017, on a new data collection: Census of Tribal Law Enforcement Agencies (CTLEA). Your comments to BJS's requests to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), published in the Federal Register, should address points such as—

  • whether the proposed data collection is necessary, including whether the information will have practical utility
  • the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions
  • whether and how the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected can be enhanced
  • the burden of the information collection on respondents, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques.

BJS proposes revised confidentiality pledge

 

The Bureau of Justice Statistics encourages comments for 60 days until May 12, 2017, on the efficacy of its revised confidentiality pledge. These revisions are required by the passage and implementation of provisions to the federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, which requires the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to provide federal civilian agencies' information technology systems with cybersecurity protection for their Internet traffic. BJS's request for comments is published in the Federal Register.
