Abstract:

This descriptive-correlational research study aimed to determine the leadership style of the police superior officers and its relationship to the level of professional commitment of Police Non-Commissioned Officers (PNCO's) assigned at the Regional Headquarters, Police Regional Office 6. The respondents were the 151 randomly selected police personnel out of the 244 total pupolation assigned inside the camp of Police Regional Office 6. The data were gathered using a duly validated and reliability tested researcher made questionnaire patterned after Robert House's Leader Behavior Styles and Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (OCQ) by Mowday, Steers and Porter. The statistical tools utilized were the frequency, percentage, mean, rank, and standard deviation for descriptive analyses and t-test, One-Way ANOVA, and Pearson's r for inferential analyses set at .05 alpha done through the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) software. The findings revealed that the prevalent leadership style of the police superior officers as perceived by the police non-commissioned officers was the directive leadership style. The directive leadership style of the superior officers was perceived as highly desirable by the police non-commissioned officers when they were taken as a whole and when classified according to age, sex, rank, and length of service. However, when they were classified according to civil status, both the single and the widow/widower/separated police non-commissioned officers viewed their superior officer's leadership style as desirable, whereas the married personnel viewed it as highly desirable. The police non-commissioned officers were found to be highly committed when they were taken as a whole and when classified according to age, sex, rank, civil status, and length of service. No significant differences was found in the perception of the prevalent leadership style of the superior officers by the police non-commissioned officers when the respondents were classified according to age, sex, rank, civil status, and length of service. No significant difference existed in the level of professional commitment of the respondents when they were classified according to age, sex, rank, civil status, and length of service. There is a significant relationship between the leadership style of the superior officers and the professional commitment of the police non-commissioned officers.
