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.show more

Back cover copy

It can be said that those who analyze the present can easily make mistakes, but those who ignore the past can be swallowed so deep by stressful lives that even their loved ones abandon them. This is an analysis of police officer stress, where it comes from and what to do about it. Two assumptions drive this work: current events in American history are changing police work forever and that officer stress is actually a symptom of an antiquated police organization that must be retooled to meet these challenges. This work explains both the officer's and the organization's contribution toward stress and makes practical recommendations towards resolution. "This text is really a major step forward in a very important field" - Nicholas Irons County College of Morris, NJ "This text may very well be the first 'truly' objective examination of the current keystones of policing" - Roger Pennel Central Missouri State Universityshow more
