(4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:53 Dec 16, 2015 Jkt 238001 abstract: Respondents will be general purpose state and local law enforcement agencies (LEAs), including police departments, sheriff’s offices, and state law enforcement agencies. Abstract: Since 1987, BJS has collected information about the personnel, policies, and practices of law enforcement agencies via the Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics (LEMAS) survey. This core survey, which has been administered every 4 to 6 years, has been used to produce nationally representative estimates of the functions and responsibilities of law enforcement agencies and the staff serving in those organizations. In addition to core management and administrative information, BJS will also begin using the LEMAS platform for topical supplemental surveys, fielded periodically, to collect data on key issues in contemporary policing. The body worn camera supplement (BWC) is the first of these topical supplements. Specifically, the BWCS survey will focus on LEAs use of body-worn media and will ask agencies about their experiences with body-worn cameras, factors that influence the choice to acquire the technology, and considerations that guide policies for the use of these technologies. This survey will build on the existing LEMAS program and provide key information on an issue that is of particular interest to the law enforcement community and the communities they serve. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An agency-level survey will be sent to approximately 5,063 LEA respondents with the goal of obtaining 3,122 completed surveys. The expected burden placed on these respondents is about 23 minutes per respondent. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The total respondent burden is approximately 1,884 burden hours.
