Abstract
People with high self-esteem are more competent at working in difficult situations and are less prone to stress problems. Specific suggestions are made with the aim of improving the self- esteem of police officers. A sense of competence can be enhanced in the areas of anti-crime and non-criminal activities. Increased information about cases and the neighborhood, training for competence in stress situations, enhancing the status of the patrolman in the department, and development of mutual respect within the community are also suggested. An improvement in self- esteem will also improve the effectiveness of the police officer.
