Abstract : The purpose of the survey was to provide information for the validation of courses of instruction and the determination of continuing training requirements. This paper is a summary of the methodology and findings of the occupational survey. A detailed job inventory, consisting of 742 tasks and 39 background items, was completed by 638 Security Police Officers representing 61 percent of the assigned strength. Each person answered the background questions, selected the tasks he or she performed, and rated the relative amount of time spent on each task. Data analysis was accomplished using the Comprehensive Occupational Data Analysis Program (CODAP) package. CODAP allows identification of the jobs and tasks performed by utilization field members and comparison of that data to the training provided to personnel entering the utilization field. Analysis of the occupational survey data indicated a logical career progression pattern for Security Police Officers beginning with shift commander for lieutenants and progressing, with increased grade, to operations officer, staff officer and commander.
