||Personal control is an important determinant of stress experienced at work. This variable is taken into account in different models of stress, and its role in the relationship between stress and stress effects has been studied in many research projects. This paper presents an instrument that has been developed to assess personal control, entitled the "Sense of Personal Control at Work" (SPCW) questionnaire, and discussed the following issues: theoretical assumptions behind the SPCW questionnaire; origins of SPCW questionnaire; results of an empirical study on psychometric characteristics of the SPCW questionnaire. A group of 160 police officers participated in the study; the SPCW questionnaire was administered twice with a 2-week interval. The study provided adequate evidence to support the usefulness of the tool as a measuring instrument.
