by Blue, Shiquita P., Ph.D., CAPELLA UNIVERSITY, 2011, 120 pages; 3458455


This study investigated the relationship between police officer performance appraisal and performance in a rural police department. The police department used in the study was located in a rural city in the eastern part of the United States that contained approximately 166 police officers and 58,000 citizens. In order to evaluate the employee performance achievement, organizational goals and objectives were measured in part by performance appraisals. Findings suggested that beliefs of performance appraisal and perceptions of job performance are strongly linked. Key findings of the study, as well as its future implications, are discussed.
