The AJSAC has released Fact Sheet 14-02, "State and Local Law Enforcement Personnel in Alaska: 1982–2012," which presents data for 1982–2012 on state and local law enforcement personnel in Alaska, including size of law enforcement agencies by number of employed personnel, police-citizen ratio, ratio of sworn officers to civilian employees, and employment of women as sworn officers. Data is drawn from the annual Crime in Alaska report of the Alaska Department of Public Safety and the annual Crime in the United States report of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, both of which are part of the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) program. The fact sheet is by Khristy Parker, research professional at the Alaska Justice Statistical Analysis Center (AJSAC).
