International Journal of Services and Standards (IJSS), Vol. 7, No. 3/4, 2011

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present results from a survey of police managers in Norway on leadership roles and occupational culture. A total of 18 police personnel values for occupational culture were applied in this research. All of them represent cultural dimensions of potential importance to law enforcement performance. Respondents emphasised the role of personnel leader where the manager is responsible for supervising, hiring, training, organising, coordinating and motivating a cadre of personnel to achieve the goals of the organisation. Empirical research, as presented in this paper, is important to generate insights into links between theory and practice in police management.
