Police Psychology is also concerned whh behavior understanding, explaining and ever predicting. Police Psychology is primarily interested in the analysis of behavior of policemen. The purpose of the study is to see the effect of Perceived workplace harassment on mental health status and job satisfaction among PAC, Civil Police and Traffic Police. Participants were 103 police constables from the police services in Uttar Pradesh. Among these, 39 participants were Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC), 41 participants were civil police employees and 23 participants were Traffic Police. The measure of perceived workplace harassment is developed by Berdahl and Moore (2006). Among the mental health status dimensions, well-being was assessed on the dimensions of psychological distress (PD) and psychological wellbeing (PWB) (Heubeck & Neill, 2000). Job satisfaction was measured by 22 item scale adapted from the scale reported by Dantzker (1993). Three items were used for getting information about the participants' age, salary and number of years served in the police force. Results showed that among the demographic variables, there was no significant difference between the three groups with regard to salary, there were significant differences in the age and experience of the constables in the three types of police organizations. Results clearly indicated that ethnic harassment was significantly different among the three types of police constables. However, not-man-enough harassment, psychological wellbeing, psychological distress andjob satisfaction were not significantly different among the three types of police constables. The findings from the study have clearly highlighted not-man-enough harassment and ethnic harassment has not significant predictors of job satisfaction among PAC, Civil Policeand Traffic Police.

Abstract


Police Psychology is also concerned whh behavior understanding, explaining and ever predicting. Police Psychology is primarily interested in the analysis of behavior of policemen. The purpose of the study is to see the effect of Perceived workplace harassment on mental health status and job satisfaction among PAC, Civil Police and Traffic Police. Participants were 103 police constables from the police services in Uttar Pradesh. Among these, 39 participants were Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC), 41 participants were civil police employees and 23 participants were Traffic Police. The measure of perceived workplace harassment is developed by Berdahl and Moore (2006). Among the mental health status dimensions, well-being was assessed on the dimensions of psychological distress (PD) and psychological wellbeing (PWB) (Heubeck & Neill, 2000). Job satisfaction was measured by 22 item scale adapted from the scale reported by Dantzker (1993). Three items were used for getting information about the participants' age, salary and number of years served in the police force. Results showed that among the demographic variables, there was no significant difference between the three groups with regard to salary, there were significant differences in the age and experience of the constables in the three types of police organizations. Results clearly indicated that ethnic harassment was significantly different among the three types of police constables. However, not-man-enough harassment, psychological wellbeing, psychological distress andjob satisfaction were not significantly different among the three types of police constables. The findings from the study have clearly highlighted not-man-enough harassment and ethnic harassment has not significant predictors of job satisfaction among PAC, Civil Policeand Traffic Police.
