The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) has administered the Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies (CSLLEA) regularly since 1986. The CSLLEA serves as the complete enumeration of law enforcement agencies (LEAs) in the U.S. This national roster of active publicly-funded LEAs will serve as a sampling frame for other survey collections as well as provide national, state and local-level data on the size, characteristics and functions of LEAs in the U.S.
If you have any questions, call RTI toll - free at 1-866-309-4563, or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. When corresponding about this survey, please include your CSLLEA Agency ID.
