Annotation: The central issue of this study involves determining the importance of various demographic and job specific attitudes in predicting job satisfaction among patrol officers.
Abstract: Findings contradict much of the previous literature that suggested a predictable association between specific factors and officer attitudes. Instead, this study supports a situational approach to predicting job satisfaction. In addition, the impact of affirmative actions was shown to be highly associated with job satisfaction under certain circumstances. (Publisher abstract)
