and the community.

The FY 2022 noncompetitive award for the Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics (LEMAS) Supplemental Survey will provide funding from October 1, 2022 to December 31, 202 4. The LEMAS survey, conducted every 3 to 4 years since 1987, is based on a nationally representative sample of approximately 3,500 agencies and provides national estimates of law enforcement salaries, expenditures, operations, equipment, information systems, and policies and procedures.

In addition to these regular core surveys, BJS also fields LEMAS supplemental surveys to capture detailed information on specific issues in law enforcement.

The first LEMAS supplemental survey, which focused on law enforcement use of body-worn cameras, was fielded in 201 7. Funding under this new noncompetitive award will support the development and fielding of a two-topic LEMAS supplemental survey in FY 2023, with the two topics being (1) post-academy law enforcement training and (2) organizational responses related to police suicide.

Statutory Authority:

Additional Information of Eligibility:
RTI International To advance Executive Order 13929 Safe Policing for Safe Communities, the Attorney General determined that all state, local, and university or college law enforcement agencies must be certified by an approved independent credentialing body or have started the certification process to be eligible for FY 2022 DOJ discretionary grant funding.

The certification requirement also applies to law enforcement agencies receiving DOJ discretionary grant funding through a subaward.
