Abstract

During an online conversation about perceptions of police work through the eyes of police spouses and partners, the PoliceWives.org developed and distributed a seven question survey and posted it on their website. Eighteen members of the organization responded. Survey results were collected and analyzed by Blue Wall of Silence. The Policewives.org questionnaire addressed perceptions and thoughts of survey respondents (i.e., spouses and partners) regarding their unique roles as spouses and partners and their personal views regarding their spouse/partner‟s career choice.
