Course Description

This presentation will focus on research into using the California Personality Inventory (CPI) as part of a comprehensive approach to screening pre-employment candidates for sworn and detention positions. Specifically, the predictive ability of the four basic personalities measured by the CPI (alpha, beta, gamma, delta) and level of ego strength from one to seven) were analyzed compared to recommendations of goodness of fit as rated by experienced public safety psychologists. Discussion of strengths and weakness of the four personality types as well as their applications to essential job functions of sworn and detention positions will be included.
