The local law enforcement locations feature class/ shapefile contains point location and tabular information pertaining to a wide range of law enforcement entities in the United States. Law Enforcement agencies “are publicly funded and employ at least one full-time or part-time sworn officer with general arrest powers”. This is the definition used by the US Department of Justice – Bureau of Justice Statistics (DOJ-BJS) for their Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies (CSLLEA). Unlike the previous version of this dataset, federal level law enforcement agencies are excluded from this effort.
