Cop Stats

The US Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, has published two sets of data under the Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics series.

Both releases cover topics such as personnel, budget and pay, operations, community policing, policies and procedures, equipment, and computers and information system. Departments are categorized by size of population served. Only the largest departments are identified.

To get some idea of criminal justice system expenditures generally, see the Bulletin entitled Justice Expenditure and Employment in the United States, 2003.
