This study reports frequencies of observed counterproductive work behaviors by gender and race in a large sample of law enforcement personnel. Data are reported separately for overall, organizationally targeted, and interpersonal counterproductivity. Results indicate mat gender differences exist (men engaging in CWB more frequently than women), yet all these differences are small. Race differences in observed frequencies of CWB appear negligible. Implications for organizational diversity are discussed.
