Abstract

This study was carried out to predict the effect of emotional intelligence, self-efficacy, job interest, life satisfaction and pay incentives as correlates of effective community policing in South West Nigeria. The participants were three hundred police officers (300) which were randomly selected from South West Nigeria. Emotional intelligence, self-efficacy and life satisfaction scale were adapted while pay incentives and job interest were adopted by the researchers. Multiple Regression Analysis and ANOVA were used to analyse research questions. Finding revealed significant influence of the independent variables on the dependent variable. This buttresses the finding of why policemen and public are still at loggerheads thereby leading to lack of cooperation and ineffective policing in Nigeria. The findings have implications on the public, government, policy makers and authority of the Nigerian police.
