Description

For courses in Police and Society, Introduction to CJ, Police Stress, and Police Organization and Administration.

Based on surveys with over 500 officers, this textbook examines police officer stress from all angles. It takes an objective view and looks at occupational stress, on the job stress, critical incident stress, and stress produced from the police organizational structure. Two assumptions drive this work: current events in American history are changing police work forever and officer stress is actually a symptom of an antiquated police organization. Throughout the text, it looks at the officer’s and the organization’s contribution toward stress and makes recommendations that can be implemented at both the individual and organizational level.
