New London Case Study:
The City of New London, Connecticut, was developing a system to select police officers. One of th etests it selected was the Wonderlic Personnel Test, a cognitive ability test that was metnitioned in this chapter. For each occupation, the Wonderlic provides minimum score and a maximum score. For police officers, the minimum score is 20 and the maximum is 27. Robert J Jordan applied for a job as a police officer but was not given an interview because his score of 33 (equivlent to an IQ of 125) made him “to bright” to be a cop. New London’s reasoning was the highly intelligent officers would get bored with their jobs and would either cause trouble or quit. The New Londdon’s deputy police chief was quoted as saying, “Bob Jordan is exactly the type of guy we would want to screen out. Police work is kind of mundane. We don’t deal in gunfights every night. There’s a personality that can take that.” Turnover was a great concern, as the city spend about $25,000 sending each officer through the academy.
The police department in neighboring Groton, Connecticut, also uses Wonderlic but tries to hire the highest scores possible- a policy with which most I/O psychologists would agree.
When New London’s policy recieved nathional publicity, the city became the butt of many jokes and the police became a source of embarrassment to many of the residients. According to one residient, “I’d rather have them hire the right man or woman for the job and keep replacing them than have the same moron for twenty years.” Another commented, “Your average dunderhead is not the person you want to try to solve a fight between a man and his wife at 2:00 am.” The ridicule got so bad that another city ran an ad asking, “Too smart to work for New London? Apply with us”; San Francisco police chief Fred Lau encouraged Jordan to apply to the San Fransico Police Department; and host Jay Leno rewrote the theme song for the television show to include, ” Dumb cops, dumb cops, whatcha gonna do with a low IQ?”
Jordan filed a lawsuit but lost. The judge ruled, “Plaintiff may have been disqualified unwisely bu he was not denied equip protection.”
