ABSTRACT

The policing function in any society faces a constant conflict to balance the needs/safety of their kith-kin and responsibility towards nation in crisis. The present study reviews the internal unrest in Law enforcement officers pertaining to family and duty as a function of personality during crisis. The study surveyed 50 police officers (44 male, 6 female). A Pearson co-relational analysis was used to measure the significance between personality and conflict. NEO-FFI scale was used for measuring personality. The present study also used the work family conflict scale- an adapted version of Netemeyer et al. instrument. It was hypothesized that individuals who score high on neuroticism face more work-family conflict as compared to individuals who scored high on agreeableness and openness to experience. With respect to gender, it was expected that women are more likely to face internal conflict as compared to men. Results showed that personality factors shared strong co-relation with conflict.
