BJS proposes new data collections on state and local law enforcement agencies and prosecutor offices in PL-280 states serving tribal lands

BJS encourages comments for 60 days until December 12, 2017, on two new data collections: Survey of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies in PL-280 States Serving Tribal Lands and Survey of Prosecutor Offices in PL-280 States Serving Tribal Lands. Your comments to BJS's requests to the Office of Management and Budget, 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.
