POLICING IN MINING: EFFECT OF STRESS ON POLICE ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITMENT AND PERFORMANCE
The objective of this study is to identify the effect of stressors on organizational commitment and how organizational commitment affects the performance of police personnel on duty in mining areas. Stressors explored in this study consist of Factors Intrinsic to Job, Organizational Context, Role in Organization, Relationship at Work, Career Development, and Extra Organizational Factors. The quantitative result indicated that organizational context negatively influences organizational commitment. The results also confirm recent research regarding the positive effect of commitment on police performance. In general, stressors tested in this study found to be less harm to the commitment of police officers working in complex and conflictprone economic sectors such as the mining sector. However, it is worth noting that although some stressors do not have a significant effect, the negative influence of stressors such as factors Intrinsic to the job and extra organizational factors is known to exist and can have a negative impact on commitment.
