Law Enforcement Agencies 1 Law Enforcement Agencies The duties, functions, and responsibilities of local and state law enforcement agencies are similar to some degree but differ as well. Local law enforcement agencies consist of the majority of all law enforcement. Three levels of local law enforcement agencies are somewhat different themselves and are responsible for local jurisdictions. State law enforcement agencies are responsible for enforcing state laws and protecting the safety of state highways. Federal agencies take on the responsibility of any federally governed laws and criminal activity. Metropolitan law enforcement agencies are the largest operator of police departments. The duties of metropolitan police are; arrest law breakers, patrol designated areas, investigate crime, enforce traffic laws, and control traffic and crowds for public events. Some larger cities require municipal police to provide these same duties in schools, hospitals, parks, tunnels, airports, and other public areas. County law enforcement agencies are mostly covered by the sheriff’s department.
