dc.description.abstractAn effective traffic enforcement program is dependent upon the voluntary compliance of all drivers. There are several methods available that, if properly applied, will aid the traffic administrator in achieving an effective program. One of the ways to insure effectiveness is through the positive contact between an officer and a vehicle driver. The way in which an officer performs in the contact situation is often the key to subsequent attitudes held by the driver toward voluntary compliance in driving. The thrust of this research has been to learn how aggression changes in the law enforcement officer during training and to conceptually asses how these changes, through cognitive training processes, serve to alleviate the causes of aversive contacts between and officer and a driver. The main objectives of this research were as follows: 1. To establish, by using self-evaluation on the Guilford-Zimmerman Temperament Survey and a supervisor's rating on work performance, an evaluation of 32 police officer subjects for determining field work efficiency. 2. To conceptually relate temperament levels on the ten traits from the Guilford-Zimmerman Temperament Survey with aggression levels. 3. To compare data among and between the experimental and the control groups to determine if there are temperament differences associated with groups prior to and following treatment. 4. To compare group responses prior to and following treatment to determine if the temperament level of all groups is influenced by the listed demographic variables such as sex, age, education, work assignment and time in a law enforcement agency. ...en
