Abstract: This article summarizes a Bureau of Justice Statistics’ (BJS) report that highlights a nearly 60 percent increase in the total number of full-time employees in sheriffs’ offices across the United States between 1993 and 2013, including a growing number of minority and female personnel. BJS data reveals that the total number of full-time employees in sheriffs’ offices increased from 224,200 employees in 1993 to 351,900 in 2013. Much of the increase can be attributed to a rise in the number of civilian employees hired since 1993. From 1993 to 2013, fulltime, sworn personnel (those with general arrest powers) increased by 21 percent (up 33,100), while full-time, civilian employees increased by 138 percent (up 94,500). The data presented are from the BJS Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics (LEMAS) Survey. The full report, Sheriffs’ Office Personnel, 1993–2013, (NCJ 249757), is provided.
