dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to select an efficient assessment, the California Personality Inventory, to utilize as a screening device for the Salisbury Police Department. The CPI was administered to twenty-six potential law enforcement officers currently involved in a thirteen week training program. Of the twenty-six potential officers, eight planned to work for the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), The hypothesis of this study was that these eight candidates would score significantly higher on the CPI scales. Of the eighteen CPI scales, the DNR group scored signif­icantly higher on nine; those scales included: intellectual efficiency, achievement via confor­mity, achievement via independence, responsibility, socialization, self-control, communality, sociabi­lity and psychological-mindedness. Consequently, the hypothesis in this particular study was supported.en_US
