The data are presented by departments serving various population sizes (greater than 20,000, between 10,000 and 20,000, between 5,000 and 9,999, and population less than 5,000).

Other data cover workload, calls for service, crime prevention, the Uniform Crime Reporting program, contract law enforcement, civil process, jail facilities, employee turnover rate, and personnel training. The concluding section of the report charts county sheriff's office budget expenses, annual salaries of full-time sworn personnel, and personnel benefits according to county population.
