dc.description.abstract My goal in this research was to identify the reasons for the turnover of police officials in the Amhara National Regional State of Ethiopia in order for the Amhara National Regional State Police Commission to retain a greater number of police personnel in future. A further purpose was to share and introduce a number of important reasons for turnover, namely poor salary, low emphasis by government, risk of work in policing, hardship of policing, lack of extra pay for extra work, unfair decisions and unequal treatment, tentativeness of the rules and regulations, lack of an incentive/reward system, unfair transfer and lack of transfer, lack of promotion, lack of respect for policing on the part of the community, lack of participation in decisions, inadequate equipment, and lack of and unfair educational opportunities. The research describes to what extent the poor salary and low emphasis on policing by the government influence turnover. It clearly portrays the emphasis placed by all respondents on these two factors in particular. Finally, this research explains the responsibility of police management structures to establish and maintain diversified management situations so that relatively safe and agreeable conditions pertain at all levels of the police service and in all areas of the work of an official. Therefore, the researcher hopes that the senior management of the Amhara Police Commission will recognise the seriousness of the problem of turnover and will improve the internal management of the organisation in the interests of all inhabitants of the region. en
