Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to determine the adequacy of selection and probation procedures for AF civilian police officers at Wright-Patterson AFB WPAFB, Ohio. The primary objective was to conduct an analytical comparison of contemporary procedures in order to lay the foundation for future developments in AF civilian standards. It was found that WPAFB civil service hiring procedures appear to be significantly different from hiring practices observed in the field research in some areas. It was concluded that a problem does exist in the determination of adequate selection procedures for AF civilian police officers and that current WPAFB hiring practices probably provide less effective screening of potentially unfit candidates than some local police agencies.
