Highway Patrol Workers Loyal; Dissatisfied

KSAL StaffSeptember 2, 2014

A survey of Kansas Highway Patrol employees found a high degree of loyalty to the organization but strong frustration with management.

The $20,000 study was done by University of Kansas researches and was prompted by complaints of weak morale in the organization.

About 83 percent of those surveyed said they cared about the fate of the organization and nearly 70 percent said they felt loyalty to the agency. But more than two-thirds said they didn’t believe the highway patrol’s management consistently enforced disciplinary procedures for all workers.

The highway patrol’s superintendent says two-thirds of civilian and uniform personnel volunteered for the survey. He says he’d received complaints in the past three years and wanted the review to identify whether the concerns were perceived or real.
