Abstract
Three sources of stress among policemen are identified as environmental, interpersonal and administrative. The environmental factors are those which arise directly from work and personal experience and pressures which arise from conflicting expectations. The interpersonal factors include personality diversity, physical- emotional relationships, and personality costs. Administrative factors, considered the easiest to change, involve the work climate, communication, and organizational design. General and specific plans are proposed as strategies for the reduction of stress, recognizing that no plan or combination of plans will prevent all stress. An appendix lists issues and factors in police job stress.
