Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $196,682)

The 2006 Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Training Academies is part of a continuing effort by BJS to expand statistical activities related to law enforcement generally, and law enforcement training in particular. The first training academy census, conducted in 2002, established baseline information on the operations of the Nation's State and local basic law enforcement training academies. The 2006 census will update and document any changes since the 2002 census. Information generated by this data collection will help to improve the Nation's understanding of law enforcement training. The information will be useful for Federal, State, and local governments to assess the areas in which additional resources for development, improvement, or expansion of law enforcement training capabilities may be necessary. The information will also assist State and local training academies in identifying common training practice, policies, and resource needs. ca/ncf
