This is a wide category of law enforcement agencies
that, unlike most local and county police departments,
have jurisidictions that do not correspond to a geographic
area or are not associated with an exclusive population.
These agencies do not report a coverage population to
the Uniform Crime Reporting Program and therefore arrest
rates can not be calculated for these agencies. The type
of agencies in this category vary from state to state,
but often include university police agencies, divisions
of the state police, transit authority police, and Departments
of Parks and Recreation. University police agenices are
in this category because student population include individuals
who live off-campus as well as on-campus. Many, but not
all, state polioce agencies have overlapping jurisidction
with local and county police agencies, as do transit
authority pooice agencies. The defining characteristic
for listing these agencies together, though, is that
they do not report population coverage areas to the Uniform
Crijme Reporting Program. Because these agencies are
often responsible for significant numbers of marijuana
arrests and are not included in other tables based on
arrest rates they are reported here. However, the arrests
of these agencies are reported in county and state level
