The Police Academy seeks to shape its graduates to have a mindset and behavior that includes good intellectual abilities, mental attitude, and morals by fostering and training discipline. It is hoped that officers graduating from the Police Academy will be able to carry out field duties properly, professionally as first line supervisors, and be able to provide role models to members and the community where they serve. Discipline is one's awareness and willingness to obey all company regulations and social norms that apply (Malayu Hasibuan, 2003: 193). The need to grow the discipline of cadets through self-awareness to comply with the rules, rules and norms that apply. Self-awareness can arise due to strong motivation from within and from outside the person and the environment. Motivation that comes from the environment, one of the caregivers in charge of carrying out care and coaching of cadets. With this motivation, it is expected that awareness and willingness will arise in the cadets to improve their discipline by complying with all applicable regulations. The purpose of the research conducted is to determine the effect of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation partially and simultaneously on the discipline of the Youth Academy of Police. This research uses a quantitative approach with a survey method. The population in this study was the Police Academy Cadets, totaling 792 people and a sample of 266 people, consisting of 245 cadets and 21 cadets, with an age range of 18-31 years. The number of samples using the Slovin formula and carried out by random sampling techniques, data collection techniques using a questionnaire consisting of 41 items statement, consisting of 12 items for intrinsic motivation variables, 11 items for extrinsic motivation variables, and 18 items for disciplinary variables. Data analysis techniques using the Instrument Test, Classic Assumption Test, Multiple Regression Analysis and Hypothesis Test using the t test and F test and the coefficient of determination. From the research findings and discussion obtained by the multiple linear regression equation Ŷ = 8.618 + 0.287X1 + 1.117X2. Partially, intrinsic motivation affects the level of discipline of cadets who wish to get the best performance in each activity, and receive recognition from caregivers at 3,517. For extrinsic motivation, the fulfillment of facilities that support cadets to achieve and establish harmonious relationships between cadets and caregivers is 13,242. Where intrinsic and extrinsic motivation, it influences discipline by 56.4%, the rest is influenced by other variables outside of this study by 43.6%. So further research is recommended to look for other factors that influence the disciplince of cadets such as individual characteristic variables, cohesiveness, transformational leadership, organizational climate, so that it can be explained more fully about other variables outside of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation that influence the discipline.
