This indicator is calculated by dividing the number of sworn police officers by the total population. We multiply the result by 1,000. According to the FBI, sworn officers meet the following criteria: “they work in an official capacity, they have full arrest powers, they wear a badge (ordinarily), they carry a firearm (ordinarily), and they are paid from governmental funds set aside specifically for payment of sworn law enforcement representatives.” In counties with relatively few people, a small change in the number of officers may have a significant effect on rates from year to year.

In New Hampshire . . .

  • The rate in 2010 was 2.0 per 1,000 population, compared to 2.3 in the U.S.

Note: The rate is calculated by dividing the number of sworn police officers by the total population. It is presented on a "per 1,000" basis. Sworn officers meet the following criteria: they are working in an official capacity, they have full arrest powers, they wear a badge (ordinarily), they carry a firearm (ordinarily), and they are paid from governmental funds set aside specifically for payment of sworn law enforcement respresentatives. The state rate may be higher because it includes state police who aren't counted at the county level. NA = Not Reported or Not Available.
