Repercussions of Law Enforcement Activity

The law enforcement community explicitly rewards traits such as physical toughness, independence, emotional restriction, and the ability to instrumentally react in the face of traumatic events. However, it is unquestionable that police and support personnel face specific psychological distress on the job as a result of exposure to emotionally Toxic and Corrosive situations. As a result, many officers suffer high rates of depression, anxiety, stress, anger management problems, and relationship difficulties. At times, the level of critical incident stress and occupational stress leads to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Major Depression, Substance Abuse, Alcoholism and at worst, Suicide. However, by studying and understanding potential emotional and physical reactions to critical incidents and providing insight into management of the everyday organizational stressors, officers can develop the personal and social resilience to truly survive and grow in the Law Enforcement profession.
