NYPD Quizzing Officers About Their Jobs

May 27, 2014  | 

A survey sent out by NYPD brass quizzes cops about their jobs and lets them answer anonymously.

The 33-question questionnaire, obtained by the Daily News, is part of Police Commissioner Bill Bratton’s Reengineering 2014 Initiative, a letter attached to the test states.

In one section, the voluntary survey asks cops what they do when they’re unsure how to handle a situation.

“How often do you turn to the following sources for guidance?”

The survey asks them if they consult with various superiors, training guides or fellow officers. It then offers them a final option: “I don’t, I wing it.”

IN the early 80's NYS did a survey to ask Officers how they felt about their jobs and what training they felt they needed. I was one of the lucky recipients. A lot of changes and upgradings were made.
