There are as of 2006, 683,396 full time state, city, university and college, metropolitan and non-metropolitan county, and other law enforcement officers in the United States. There are approx. 120,000 full time law enforcement personnel working for the federal government adding up to a total number of 800,000 law enforcement personnel in the U.S.

Update 760.000 state and local sworn officers 2008, 120,000 federal sworn officers 2008, 368,000 civilians in police agencies (state and local only) 2008. This is in excess of 1.1 million.
