1 Data reported are the number of law enforcement employees for the state of New Jersey.

2 Data reported are the number of law enforcement employees for the state of New York.

NOTE: Caution should be used when comparing data from one state to that of another. The responsibilities of the various state police, highway patrol, and department of public safety agencies range from full law enforcement duties to only traffic patrol, which can impact both the level of employment for agencies as well as the ratio of sworn officers to civilians employed. Any valid comparison must take these factors and the other identified crime factors (see page v) into consideration.
