Police Officer Height and Selected Aspects of Performance

Publication Date

October 1975

Author(s)

Abstract

It has long been the shared belief of the law enforcement community that the height of a police officer has an important effect on the officer’s job performance. This well-established law enforcement practice recently has collided with the legal requirements established by equal employment opportunity laws and regulations.
