Abstract

A replication of Suman Kakar (2002) ‘Gender and Police Officers’ Perceptions of Their Job Performance: An Analysis of the Relationship Between Gender and Perceptions of Job Performance’ was carried out amongst An Garda Síochána, Irelands police force. Using self-report methodology, 104 male and 40 female members of An Garda Síochána were asked to rate their job performance through a questionnaire containing 39 areas involving in the role of a police officer.
Results echoed the original study and found there was no statistical differences in how male and female officers perceive their job performances when levels of education and years of experience are controlled for. These results suggest that male and female members of An Garda Síochána are equal in their job performance and the communitive, administrative and negotiating skills associated with the police profession. Results also confirms reliability and validity of the original Kakar study. Further studies may benefit from comparing the self-reported perceptions to an actual assessment of job performance to distinguish reliability of job performance perceptions.
