The Effects of Distress on Motivation in the Police Force
Stress in the police force is a topic that is becoming an interest for researchers. Police officers not only experience stress on the job, but in the characteristics of their organization as well. This study predicted that level of stress would be inversely related to motivational levels. Additional hypotheses were made about relationships between stress, motivation, energy allocation, and job performance and motivation as assessed by a supervisor. Results showed no significant correlation between stress and motivational level. Even though this study showed only one significant correlation between stress and the energy pool, the small sample size made it difficult to make any real conclusions. Although this study showed insignificant results, additional research needs to be concentrated on this link between stress and motivation.
