  • 1 The total employee count includes employees from agencies that are not represented in other law enforcement employee tables.
  • 2 Data reported are the number of law enforcement employees for the state of New Jersey.
  • NOTE: Caution should be used when comparing data from one state to that of another. The responsibilities of the various state police,
    highway patrol, and department of public safety agencies range from full law enforcement duties to only traffic patrol, which can impact both
    the level of employment for agencies as well as the ratio of sworn officers to civilians employed. Any valid comparison must take these
    factors and the other identified variables affecting crime into consideration.
