The agency publishes data regarding statistics gathered from the roughly fifty-thousand agencies that comprise the U.S. justice system on its Web site.[2]

To collect, analyze, publish, and disseminate information on crime, criminal offenders, victims of crime, and the operation of justice systems at all levels of government.

In 2005, the Bush administration replaced BJS director Lawrence Greenfeld after he refused to remove certain racial statistics from a report, despite having published similar statistics in 2001. The following two references provide analysis and initial reporting, respectively.

More recently, Jeffrey Sedgwick, Michael Sinclair, John Jay Professor James P. Lynch, and former Deputy Director William Sabol have served as Directors.

Until 2012 the position of the BJS Director required a Senate approval, but since 2012 the post only requires the President's appointment.[5] The current BJS Director, appointed by Donald Trump, is Jeffrey H. Anderson.[5][1]
