Professional Deformations of Police Officers of Various Departments

Abstract

The reported study was funded by RFBR according to the research project № 19-013-00517. Since the activities of the internal affairs officers are considered specific, and belonging to a certain unit undoubtedly leaves its mark on employees, deforming their identities in different ways, we see it as important to identify differences and features of professional deformations of internal affairs officers of various departments. The goal is to reveal features of a professional personal deformation of employees of internal affairs departments, carrying out administrative and preventive function and units engaged in the investigation and detection of crime. The study involved 70 police officers of the city of Arkhangelsk. Of these, 51 men and 19 women aged 21 to 49 years. Average age: 36.7 ± 5.5 years; average length of service: 11.64 ± 6.93 (maximum length of service 26 years). The study used methods of quantitative data analysis: questioning, testing. A comparative analysis of the severity of professional personality deformations among employees of various departments with different professional performance has shown that employees of the department investigating and solving crimes have a higher degree of professional aggression and behavioral transfer than employees performing a preventive function. Employees with reduced performance characteristics have higher rates on the scales of professional aggression, behavioral transfer, conservatism, and anxiety. Employees who investigate and solve crimes and note a decrease in efficiency have indicators on the scale of "professional aggression" above the norm, which indicates the severity of this type of professional personality deformation.
