The ratio of law enforcement versus population has grown over the years, from 2.23 sworn law enforcement officers in 1992 to a high of 2.51 sworn law enforcement officers in 2008. The numbers have declined in recent years due to state and local cut backs due to the recent recession. Most likely if newer data was available, another uptick would be seen in the data.
