Secondary: Patrol officers, directors of advocacy organizations for immigrants, and clients of immigration advocacy organizations. While there has been great progress in understanding and measuring hate crime, many fundamental questions remain unanswered. To address these questions, we are employing a multimethod analysis of hate crime in the United States with a special focus on trends in crimes against Hispanic Americans and others perceived to be immigrants. The first phase of the project, already complete, involved gathering and analyzing relevant secondary data sets. Phase two of the project will involve a survey of a sample of 500 police departments, focus groups with law enforcement personnel and NGOs addressing hate crime in five selected sites, and interviews with expert law enforcement practitioners, trainers and researchers. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: We hope to gather 500 responses to the law enforcement survey. Agencies selected for the survey will be based on a disproportionate stratified random sample design with oversampling of agencies serving populations over 50,000. Further, we estimate that we will conduct about 20 focus groups, each time with about eight individuals, and at least 60 individual interviews.

(4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: State and Local law enforcement agencies with Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS). The proposed collection is the only effort that provides an ability to establish the level of interoperability of automated fingerprint identification systems maintained by State and Local law enforcement agencies regarding the electronic exchange of latent fingerprints to support criminal investigations. This collection will enables NIJ; Federal, State, Local, and Tribal law enforcement and government administrators; legislators; and researchers; to understand the technology and policy barriers to local, regional, and national interoperability from the perspective of State and Local criminal investigations requiring the exchange of latent fingerprints across jurisdictional boundaries. Information collected in the core survey and survey addenda will provide critical data on the types and functionalities of fielded AFIS systems in State and Local agencies; the current policy agreements among jurisdictions to permit the sharing, exchange, and searching of latent fingerprints electronically; and the technology-related and policyrelated impediments regarding the PO 00000 Frm 00062 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 electronic sharing, exchange, and searching of latent fingerprints across various jurisdictions at the State and Local levels. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: It is estimated that 350 to 400 respondents will complete the core survey and one of two relevant addenda depending on whether the respondent is from a State or Local agency in approximately 60 minutes. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: There are an estimated 21,000 to 24,000 total burden hours associated with this collection.
