Factors Influencing Career Choice among Police Recruits
Cole, Bryan
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Lincoln Memorial University
This quantitative, non-experimental study examined the career choice factors of 154 (n = 154) police recruits to determine a correlation of age group generation to the five career choice factors presented in the Sibson Reward of Work Model. Law enforcement agencies faced a shortage of viable candidates to fill vacant positions. While extensive research existed in examining efforts of individual agencies to meet or exceed recruitment quotas, the need to examine choice factors remained. This study examined an increased number of officers having reached the retirement age, competition from similar career fields, and the absence of interest by young adults to pursue a career in law enforcement as predictors.
