Law Enforcement and Crime

Rural law enforcement agencies are critical in protecting large swaths of the country, often with fewer than 10 sworn officers. As significant players ensuring public safety, these smaller jurisdictions share many of the same challenges as their urban counterparts  but extended across larger geographic areas, and with less funding or technical support. RIC serves this rural law enforcement community by providing information on data, funding opportunities, state and agency contacts, as well as resources for K-9 units.
