The nature of job of police is very complex to work. It requires fullest dedication and commitment on employing people. While working they face several hardship from both in job as well with family life. Though there might be many problems they face on day to day life, but there can be numerous adjustment problems they faced, that to the married women. They need to take care the profession and family. In this connection, an attempt has been made to study the adjustment problems of married women police personnel and their association with socio-economic variables. The data were collected using Ramamurthy Adjusment Inventory. It consists of five dimensions namely, health, home, emotional, self and social adjustment problems. The study was descriptive in nature. The data was collected from all the married women police personnel available during the time of data collection in Tiruchirappalli District. The scoring was classified as low and high using median score. The findings show that almost in all dimensions and overall adjustment problems, the respondents have high level of adjustment problems. It may be due to the dual role performed by the individuals. There is a need for counseling and recreational centre exclusively for women police personnel.
