From Crime Fighting to Public Protection: The Shaping of Police Officers' Sense of Role
"New research... has followed a sample of new recruits to the police service through the first four years of their careers and considered how and in what ways, they adapt to their new identity as a police officer. Police officers were interviewed after the first five weeks in the job (TIME A), after six months (TIME B), after one year (TIME C) and after four years (TIME D). This rich source of data has revealed significant change over time in the new recruits’ attitudes and beliefs. A central focus of the research was on officers’ changing attitudes during the early years of their careers and the key influences upon the formation and development of those attitudes. Part of that analysis was a consideration of what the new recruits saw as their role as a police officer."
