Assessment of Police Officer Recruiting and Testing Instruments.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v29 n3/4 p1-23 1999
Examines the effects of testing results on 420 candidates who participated in police officer selection in Asheville, North Carolina between 1990 and 1996. Results show that the decision making process of officer selection is primarily testing-oriented and that candidates' socio-demographic factors, such as race show no effect on the recruitment decision.
