"The purpose of the survey was to examine the factors affecting professionalism in a structured way with a broad, representative sample of police officers. While surveys do not permit respondents to describe their concerns in their own words, they do facilitate comparative measurement of attitudes and behaviour amongst larger groups than could be feasibly interviewed. The primary objectives of the survey were to examine: officers' assessments of integrity and organizational commitment; officers’ assessments of management practices, work environment variables and agency programs; the impact of management practices, work environment variables, and agency programs on officer integrity and commitment; and group differences on key variables"--text from page 4.
