  Abstract: National estimates for sheriffs’ offices are provided for such issues as staff and financial resources, technologies and equipment in use, and agency policies and practices covering a wide array of law enforcement and administrative concerns. Highlights include the finding that in 2003 starting salaries for entry-level deputies ranged from an average of about $23,300 in the smallest jurisdictions to about $38,800 in the largest. From 1990 to 2003 the percentage of sheriffs’ officers using infield computers increased from 6 percent to 55 percent. Ten percent of sheriffs’ offices employing 31 percent of all officers, maintained or created a written community policing plan during the 12-month period ending June 30, 2003.
