Observed Morale and Measured Cynicism Between Police Districts and Workloads

Gene Danenhower, Temple University

ABSTRACT
This paper will focus on the relationship between officer morale and cynicism taking into account the differing workloads between assignments. Using current definitions of police workload, the author seeks to examine the relationship between morale and cynicism of police officers in two central districts of a large metropolitan police department. The author will combine both quantitative and qualitative research to focus on the relationship between the two.
