​Criminal Justice Agency Profile (CJAP) Report

Statewide Ratios


 

​Population ratios are provided for full-time sworn law enforcement officers per 1,000 population. The Florida population data is provided by the University of Florida, Bureau of Economic and Business Research: Florida Estimates of Population (from April 1st of each year). The full-time sworn officer counts are provided by the FDLE Automated Training Management System (ATMS).

Ratios are listed by agency for sheriffs’ offices and city police departments. A general overview of officers per 1,000 population can be found in the tables below to include totals for police departments, sheriff’s offices, state agencies and school & port agencies. All ratio calculations are based on full time officers with a law enforcement certification.

Correctional officers are not included in the officers per 1,000 population ratios. For correctional officer populations to inmates, please contact the Florida Department of Corrections or local Sheriffs’ Offices.

Many variables impact officer staffing ratios. These variables should be considered when comparing agencies and populations. Some variables that could impact these ratios include population density, crime rate, service calls per officer, the size of jurisdiction, seasonal residents, and tourists.

Note: Ratios are based on jurisdiction population. Within the county population, there may be several agencies. Each police department serves its city population. The sheriff’s offices serve any city population not served by a police department plus the unincorporated population within the county.
