Description: This paper reports results fiom the first in a series of studies evaluating perceptions of law enforcement officers (LEOs) in the US Forest Service (USFS). It is a follow-up to previous qualitative studies conducted to learn more about crime and violence in national forests and the impacts on recreation visitation and management, and test key characteristics of success in law enforcement, measure opinions about recreation visitor and public safety, and evaluate impacts to natural resources. Another incentive for conducting this study was to respond to a federal initiative for performance based measures.
