Thank you to the award committee: Suzanne Chan-Serafin (Chair), So-Hyeon Shim, Shenjiang Mo, Tiffany Johnson, Sunjin Pak
Comments: By integrating the trait of imagination and the context of centralization into the literature on voice, this paper tests theory in an unusually creative way. This paper also examines the notion of silencing within police departments, as such the authors investigate a socially important phenomenon in organizations. The paper is well-written, the theoretical model is clear, and the study is well executed.
