Description:

A product of the Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), and written by Brian A. Reaves and Matthew J. Hickman, Police Departments in Large Cities, 1990-2000 "describes trends from 1990 to 2000 among local police departments serving US cities with 250,000 or more residents." Equipped with charts and graphs, the report presents statistical data in crime rate and residents served, female and minority representation, education and training requirements, operating budgets, salaries and special pay, drug enforcement, types of equipment used, types and number of vehicles accessible, and types of special units. According to the report, some of the changes among large city police departments that occurred within the last decade included a 10 percent increase in the number of residents served, a 7 percent increase in the number of full time sworn personnel per 100,000 residents, a 14 percent increase in the number of Hispanic officers, a 20 percent increase in the number of African American officers, and a 16 percent increase in the number of female officers. Users may view the entire document online, or order a paper version through BJS.
