Abstract:
The significance of job satisfaction in any organizational setting and work environment, including law enforcement cannot be over-emphasized. This is due to the fact that job satisfaction has the tendency to influence work productivity, staff turnover, labor market behavior, work effort, and employee morale. Job satisfaction has long been the subject of discussion among academic scholars, industrialists, researchers, as well as in the business community. The study critically examined the correlates of job satisfaction from the organizational viewpoint among officers of the Nigeria Police. Data was collected through mail in survey from 500 police officers across the country for over a period of three months of which 437 of the surveys were found valid for data analysis, representing 72.8% response rate. The results suggest that "the work itself, remuneration/pay, promotion opportunities, and supervision had significant impact on job satisfaction while co-workers had no significant correlation with the officer's job satisfaction.
