Abstract

The general objective of this study was to assess the demographic characteristics which affect police officers’ job satisfaction at Tanzania Police School – Moshi. Specific objectives were to assess the level of Police officers’ job satisfaction, analyse demographic characteristics and assess the differences in job satisfactions across categories of demographic characteristics of Police Officers at TPS - Moshi. The researcher used a non-probability convenience sampling technique to get 150 respondents out of 404 police officers, out of whom 34 were females and 116 males. Job satisfaction was assessed using the Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS) questionnaire (Spector, 1994) containing nine facets of job satisfaction. The differences in job satisfactions across categories of demographic variables of Police officers at TPS – Moshi were analysed by descriptive statistics and Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) techniques. The findings reveal that the average mean scores on job satisfaction of police officers at TPS Moshi were of satisfaction level. Furthermore, the findings reveal that there was a significant difference in job satisfaction scores across educational level, working experience, age and marital status. But the findings show that there was no significant difference among the job satisfaction scores across the rank and gender. The findings would assist TPF to create an operating environment which moderates the differences across officers’ demographic differences in order to enhance their satisfaction levels policies.
