Effects of Stress on Police Force
A lot has been spoken about the effects of stress on the lives of police officers. Look at the lives of at least two police officers from the police station in your community and analyze the effects of stress on the police officers. Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research and analyze why police officers have high levels of suicide, alcoholism, and divorce rates. In a 2- to 3-page Microsoft Word document, create a report that includes answers to the following:
- There are organizations and groups available to the police to deal with stress. Compile information about ten such organizations. Analyze at least two such organizations or groups from your community in great detail.
- There have been many cases especially between 2011 and 2012, in which officers have lost their lives in the line of duty. Analyze at least three cases from this period in great detail.
- How does the loss of life in the line of duty impact the stress levels of a particular agency where a police officer lost his or her life? Analyze two recent cases from your state.
