Periodically since 1995, BJS has collected information about the personnel, policies, and practices of campus law enforcement agencies via the Survey of Campus Law Enforcement Agencies (SCLEA). This survey has been used to produce nationally representative estimates on campus law enforcement personnel, duties, administration, technology, officer selection, officer training, equipment, and jurisdiction. The survey instrument was reviewed by practitioners and subject matter experts to update it from the 2011 form and ensure it covers current topics of interest to campus law enforcement while reducing respondent burden. BJS plans to publish the information collected in a report and archive the data for public use.
(5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An agency-level survey will be sent to approximately 1,860 campus LEA respondents. The expected burden placed on these respondents is about 1 hour per respondent.
