Data from the 2007 Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics (LEMAS) survey provide national estimates on staffing, operating costs, race, ethnicity and sex of deputies, deputy salaries, screening methods for hiring, and training requirements for new deputies. These data also describe sheriffs' offices in terms of types of weapons authorized, equipment, use of in-car video cameras and computers, community policing efforts, task force participation, and emergency preparedness activities."
