(4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: This information collection is a census of regional, state, and local law enforcement training academies that operated a basic training program in 2018. The 2018 survey builds upon the previous three iterations of the CLETA data collection referencing 2013, 2006, and 2002. BJS plans to field the 2018 CLETA from January through August 2019. The information will provide national statistics on staff, recruits/ trainees, curricula, facilities, and policies of law enforcement training academies. Abstract: The 2018 CLETA will focus on the same topics as the 2013 collection: the number and type of law enforcement agencies served by academies, the academies’ accreditation status, oversight responsibilities related to field training, reasons for recruits failing to complete their training program, and subject areas covered in the training program curricula. While there will be no content changes, BJS will modify the format and design of several survey items to improve measurement and remove questions from the 2013 survey that covered topics that may no longer be relevant. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: A projected 950 respondents will take an average of 2 hours each to complete form CJ–52, including time to research or find information not readily available.
