What is the “average” size of a law enforcement agency in America? Why is there so much variation in agency size? What are the largest police departments in the US? How does the percentage of officers employed by these agencies compare to the number of violent crime in each of the cities where they work as a percentage of crime in the country? How about the other end (small departments and small town crime rates)? Should there be an overall formula for determining how many police officers a city has? Why or why not?
