When it comes to personality traits in an officer’s job there are five that come to mind suspicion, hostility, insecurity, conservatism, cynicism. Not every officer has all five of these traits, they only have one. So to better understand and to be able to pick which one an officer has I will explain each one of them to you. Starting with suspicion first. Suspicion is a personality trait that allows an officer not to be able to trust anyone even with out any proof of wrong doing. This trait can usually be identified by watching how the officer approaches a suspect. The question to ask you self is does he have his gun drawn before he goes to the suspect? Does he always search a car even with out probably cause? These questions will allow you to know if the officer has the personality trait of suspicion. Next I will explain hostility trait and what it can mean for you.
