Kui kõneldakse juhtidest mingis valdkonnas, siis sageli jääb mulje, et tegemist on justkui kõikidele arusaadava üldistusastmega. Ometi võivad juhtide isikud ja nende juhtimispraktikad reljeefselt erineda. Sestap see artikkel siin oma koha leidis. Tekst võiks huvi pakkuda nii politseinikele kui kõikidele organisatsioonihuvilistele.

Kontekstiks:

“Occupational culture research, however, has focused primarily on line-level officers as few studies have considered cultural orientations across rank (cf., Engel, 2001; Manning, 1994; Reuss-Ianni, 1983), especially at the chief-level. As top leaders, chiefs influence official organizational culture and officer cultural adherence by the priorities they emphasize and the policies they set (Jermier et al., 1991; Wilson, 1968).” (Ingram et al., 2022, p. 2)

Andmed ja eesmärgid:

“Using survey data from 460 police chiefs, the current study serves two purposes. First, we examine chiefs’ views on the importance of four key aspects of the contemporary police role: law enforcement, order maintenance, community policing, and procedural justice. […] The second purpose is to identify relevant demographic, department, and jurisdictional correlates of group membership.” (Ingram et al., 2022, p. 2)

Kolm politsei traditsioonilist rolli:

“Historically, there have been three primary roles relevant to police occupational culture: law enforcement, order maintenance, and service.” (Ingram et al., 2022, p. 2)

Politseikultuuri mõjutavad organisatsioonivälised faktorid:

“Finally, police culture studies have also speculated that external environmental features such as jurisdictional socioeconomic and demographic composition, as well as levels of crime/disorder may account for cultural variation (Cordner, 2017; Paoline, 2001).” (Ingram et al., 2022, p. 7)

Senine kogemus on valdavalt ühelt tasandilt ja valdkonnast:

“In conclusion, the study of police occupational culture has garnered a considerable amount of (quantitative) empirical attention over the last 25 years, the vast majority of which has occurred among entry-level patrol officers (Paoline & Terrill, 2014).” (Ingram et al., 2022, p. 22)

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks:

“From a practical perspective, our findings shed light on the prioritization of role orientations among those responsible for shaping the culture of organizations.” (Ingram et al., 2022, p. 21)
