Goldstein, Leo S.
This final report is concerned with the collection and analysis of descriptive data on some characteristics of police applicants. The study attempts to answer some basic questions relating to the type of individual who applies for the police civil service exam and what factors differentiate the successful from the unsuccessful candidate. The following five instruments in addition to the civil service exam were administered to the applicants: (1) Police Background Information Form; (2) Police Knowledge Test; (3) Police Opinion Questionnaire; (4) Discretionary Situations; and (5) Personality Inventory. The statistical results for each item of the respective instruments are presented in the appendix. (CK)
