(2) The Title of the Form/Collection: Survey of Law Enforcement Personnel in Schools (SLEPS). (3) The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: The form number for the agency survey is SLEPS–1; the form number for the officer survey is SLEPS–2. The applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in the Office of Justice Programs. (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Respondents will be law enforcement agencies (LEAs), including school-based police; municipal, county, and regional police; sheriff’s offices; and school resource officers (SROs) employed by these LEAs. SLEPS will examine law enforcement involvement in ensuring safety in schools by conducting both an agencylevel and an officer-level survey. The agency-level survey asks about departmental policies and agreements with schools; funding sources and the number/type of schools served; and SRO recruitment, training, and supervision. The officer-level survey asks SROs about their experience as a law enforcement officer, training, activities in schools, and characteristics of their primary assignment. SLEPS will provide key national statistics to fill the knowledge gap surrounding law enforcement in schools and further the school safety agenda. (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 1,982 LEA respondents. The expected burden placed on these respondents is about 30 minutes per respondent. These respondents will also receive an officer roster form which has an expected burden of about 10 minutes per respondent. It is expected that approximately 1,367 agencies will complete the roster form. A point of contact (POC) at these 1,367 agencies will be asked to distribute an officerlevel survey to approximately 4,137 school resource officers. The expected burden is about 20 minutes per POC to distribute survey materials and about 30 minutes per officer to complete the survey.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DOL, as part of continuing efforts to reduce 
paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation 
program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an 
opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of 
information before submitting them to the Office of Management and 
Budget (OMB) for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested 
data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and 
financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly 
understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly 
assessed.
    The information collection described in this notice will provide 
data to (1) estimate the number of business establishments that 
currently operate apprenticeship and apprenticeship-like earn-and-learn 
programs across industry groups, and (2) document descriptive 
information on these existing programs. This research is in direct 
response to Executive Order 13801, ``Expanding Apprenticeships in 
America'' (www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/3245/), as well as 
the Secretary of Labor and the Office of Apprenticeship's efforts to 
promote and expand apprenticeship and to establish Industry-Recognized 
Apprenticeship Programs (IRAPs).
    The information collection activities include a brief five- to 10-
minute survey of businesses that will gather information on any 
existing apprenticeship and apprenticeship-like earn-and-learn programs 
they operate. In addition to the survey, the study includes follow-up 
interviews with a purposive sample of businesses identified as having 
apprenticeship-like programs through the survey. The interview protocol 
will be used to gather more detailed, in-depth information on the 
existing programs, including the types of participants they serve, the 
skills they address, the certifications they provide, as well as how 
the businesses work with organizations to accredit the programs. The 
interview protocol will also inquire about businesses' training 
decisions and experiences.

these two proposed data collection instruments. Additional details on 
each are presented below.
