The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a wellbeing scale for the Philippine National Police Headquarters (PNP-NHQ). This research utilized Instrument Development Model, and the methodology followed the standard scale development procedures. During data analysis, the researchers conducted validity and reliability checking, Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA), and Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) to determine the psychometric properties of the test. Results showed a high level of Cronbach’s alpha coefficients (α = .88 to α = .96) for all of the factors. There was an observed acceptable validity coefficient between the PNP-WellS and the Scale of General Wellbeing (SGWB) (r = .524) and between PNP-Wells and the Police Stress Questionnaire (PSQ) (r = -.204), thus, establishing the convergent and discriminant validity of PNP-WellS, respectively. Moreover, the fit indices were found to be within the acceptable values (RMSEA = .074, CFI = .95, NFI = .92). This study concluded that PNP-WellS is a sound measure of wellbeing appropriate to the culture of PNP-NHQ and it can be useful in determining the effectiveness of mental health policies and programs for the PNP.
