Building on the discussion of police culture in Chap. 2, in this chapter I briefly explore the concept of identity before turning to a description of the police occupational identity, how it is shaped, how it might be threatened, and possible reactions to that threat. I also touch on the concept of organizational identification and the relevance of this concept today. While culture may be deemed as providing the necessary resources and scripts for individuals within an organisation [17, 94], identity is the image that is presented to others based on cultural expectations of behavior . Consistent with other chapters, I also incorporate excerpts from interviews with police personnel to illustrate or reinforce key points.
