As you may know, the Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics is conducting the 2014 Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies (CSLLEA). The IACP supports this data collection effort and we are hoping you will see the tremendous value of the study and complete your survey. The CSLLEA is the only national census of law enforcement agencies that provides complete personnel counts, agency operating budgets, and the characteristics and functions of every law enforcement agency in the U.S. Without your agency’s data, the results will not be complete and accurate. The information collected will benefit your agency in a variety of ways including: providing comparisons with other agencies, identifying agency needs, and justifying budgets and budget requests.
The 2014 CSLLEA data collection period is coming to an end. If you have already completed your survey, please accept our sincere thanks! If not, to ensure your agency is included, we ask that you complete your survey by April 15th, 2015.
You can complete the questionnaire online at: http://connectcai.norc.org/go/csllea
If you have any questions on completing the survey, need your Personal Identification Number (PIN), or if you prefer to receive a hard copy, please contact NORC at firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll free at 877-233-5671. If you have general comments about the CSLLEA program, feel free to contact Andrea Burch, at Andrea.Burch@usdoj.gov.
We appreciate your help with this extremely important and valuable study.
