Three questions:

1. Are there norms for police telecommunications personnel
(call-takers/dispatchers) on any of the big personality tests (neo-pi-r,
16 factor etc.)

2. Are there any evaluations of their use in improving selection
practices (e.g. increased effectiveness /efficiency)

3. Are any police services using these sorts of selection tools.

(I believe that some services are using the MMPI for comm. staff, but
this screens for major malfunctions, (axis 1 and 2 maybe) as I
understand it...which I freely admit is a very thin level of
