Census of Tribal Law Enforcement Agencies

IACP and NORC at the University of Chicago were selected by the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) to conduct the 2016 Census of Tribal Law Enforcement Agencies (CTLEA). This is the first BJS statistical data collection effort to focus specifically on tribal law enforcement agencies. The CTLEA will collect information about the work of tribal law enforcement agencies, law enforcement agencies operated by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) offices, and Village Public Safety Offices (VPSOs).

The survey will provide information to tribal justice agencies, state and local agencies, policy makers, and the general public about the responsibilities, size, and structure of tribal law enforcement agencies; the services provided; agency needs; and challenges faced.
