Associated to the scholarship:19/09663-9 - Police officers more professionally satisfied are more willing to offer a better service to society?, BP.PD


This project is part of the postdoctoral project that has been ongoing since July 2019 entitled "Police officers more professionally satisfied are more willing to offer a better service to society?" (FAPESP Grant n° 2019/09663-9) at the Center for the Study of Violence (NEV-USP). The project has been exploring aspects of police work that impact the work performance and the lives of these officers. Among them, there are operational and organizational issues. We seek to comprehend how these impacts can "spillover" into internal relationships, between peers and superiors, and into external relationships, including the personal lives of these officers. We found evidence that these "spillovers" are also present in the families of these officers. We considered work-family spillover practices of inmate violence partners, ranging from verbal abuse practices to femicide. Until now, there is little research and no official data on this subject in Brazil. This project aims to fulfill this research gap, analyzing national and international literature and creating qualitative and quantitative data on this subject. To attend this aim, this project predicts a six-month internship period abroad with Professor Dr. Fiona Macaulay at the University of Bradford (UK). She has extensive experience in studies about Brazilian police organizations, femicides, and domestic violence and can contribute to advancing the understanding of this phenomenon. (AU)
