Leader Behaviors That Affect Job Satisfaction and Extra Effort in Policing

Steve Morreale, Worcester State College

ABSTRACT
This research attempted to measure the relationship of perceived leader styles and the effect on police officer job satisfaction and exertion of "extra effort." Using the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ), a group of New England sworn police officers were surveyed. A return rate of 38% indicated strong support for the use of transformational leder behaviors.
