FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin

Since 1935, the FBI has provided information on current law enforcement issues and research in the field to the larger policing community through the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin.

Just as the FBI has adapted over the years to address the changing needs of the criminal justice community, the Bulletin continues changing to reach a more mobile and widespread audience.

At the time of the last printed issue, the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin was one of the most widely read law enforcement-related publications in the world. Every month, law enforcement administrators in more than 105 countries received copies.

Its mission remains strong—to inform, educate, and broaden the criminal justice community’s understanding of current issues facing law enforcement. For over 80 years, the Bulletin has served this community and will continue to do so in the challenging days ahead. Source: FBI
