Bureau of Justice Statistics Bulletin: Federal Law Enforcement Officers, 1996

Reaves, Brian (Brian A.)
"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."

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
