Click here to study a vignette.

Dr. Johnson is entrusted with the evaluation of the police’s cadet selection procedure.

Tasks:

On the basis of the vignette you read, analyze the vignette and respond to the following questions regarding the PEPE process:

· Should the department attempt to select individuals who will be good officers, or should the department simply try to weed out potentially bad officers?
