This report describes and compares three law enforcement employment data sources: 1) the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program, 2) the Census Bureau's Annual Survey of Public Employment and Payroll (ASPEP), and 3) the Bureau of Justice Statistics' Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies (CSLLEA). The three sources provide information about the nature and scope of law enforcement employment in the United States. The sources use different definitions and vary in their periodicity and levels of coverage. This report provides recommended uses for the data sources.
