I’m not even going to attempt to precis this piece of work, it wouldn’t be right, fair or straightforward.
Therefore I give you the public link to
Over and out: the damaged and conflicting identities of officers voluntarily resigning from the police service
It is authored by Dr Sarah Chapman and Jemma Tyson from the University of Portsmouth whose only connections to the Police Service, as far as I know, is via the subject that they lecture in.
It’s a bit lengthy, but I would encourage you to persevere and read it. I (and others) have been banging on about ‘Retention’ for a long time now, so it’s interesting to read what an academic study of the problem reveals.
