Characteristics of a Chief of Police: A Concept Mapping Case Study
This website documents a community-wide concept mapping project to identify the characteristics citizens in Ithaca, New York wanted to see in their next police chief. The results were used by the selection committee to help evaluate candidates. Project was conducted 1966-1997.
This is the original unpublished paper that I worked on with Donald T. Campbell.

I thought fellow Campbell fans would enjoy seeing what may be the last original Campbell quasi-experimental design.
