ABSTRACT

Bureau of Justice Statistics Bulletin: Federal Law Enforcement Officers, 1996   [open pdf - 106KB]

"As of June 1996 Federal agencies employed about 74,500 full-time personnel authorized to make arrests and carry firearms, according to agency responses to a Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) survey. In a comparison of 1996 data with those reported by the same agencies for December 1993, employment of such personnel was up about 6%. As in 1993 the BJS officer count in 1996 includes all personnel with Federal arrest authority who were also authorized (but not necessarily required) to carry firearms in the performance of their official duties. Supervisory personnel are included."
