Abstract:

A four-phase study investigating the degree of alertness and subjective fatigue among sentry police and evaluating general manning, management, and morale problems within Security Police squadrons was conducted by the USAF School of Aerospace Medicine. Subjects included sentries stationed within CONUS and in SEA. Results showed that CONUS sentries experienced increasing feelings of fatigue but no measurable loss of alertness during 8-hour tours, while SEA sentries showed both increasing fatigue and diminishing alertness. Differences were discussed with respect to morale and manning problems, and recommendations for improving morale were made. Author
