    Abstract

    Psychiatric and psychologic screening is pertinent in many areas in our society but currently is most relevant to police work, crucial military operations (atomic weaponry), and other areas which combine potential power with delicate judgment. At the same time, at least for police work, eligibility is open, governed by some uniformity of rules, and in many areas controlled by civil service laws. The civil service laws have the effect of providing fairness at the cost of flexibility and of preventing abuse at the cost of arbitrariness.
