Inhaltsangabe: Author and forensic consultant Victoria Hargan reveals personality traits and characteristics that may be responsible for the high risk of domestic violence perpetrated by police officers. Police Personality and Domestic Violence offers a forensic psychological approach and review of literature on the scope of the problem when domestic violence is committed by a police officer. Research suggests that personality traits of police officers are similar to domestic abusers and that it is these very traits that make police officers effective at police work. Personality characteristics such as authoritative, aggressive, assertive, controlling and suspicious help the officer in his duties. These same personality traits are also negative traits in battering relationships. Domestic violence perpetrated by police officers is a result of multifaceted dynamics, including the individual police officer?s personality, police culture, police training, and exposure to violence on the job, a sense of entitlement, and influence of the administration of the police agency. These dynamics may predispose police officers to domestic violence. This book offers suggestions for the pre-selection of police candidates, in addition to reviewing the psychological instruments used in police selection. A must read for forensic evaluators, the law enforcement community, and the medical and mental health communities.
