Abstract
Common questions about stress in police work are discussed with the intention of creating awareness of the stress as a means of reducing it. Questions deal with the definition of job stress, sources of stress in policing (including stressors shared with other occupations such as role conflict, second job, work overload, etc.), the association of job stress with coronary heart disease, the consequences of shift work in policing, comparison with other occupations on the effects of the police officer's job on home life (divorce, expectations in children, fear in the wife), the association of alcoholism and police work and ways of handling it, the existence of a police subculture in reducing job stress, role of exercise in helping to reduce stress, and ways of reducing high stress in police work (identifying and eliminating job stressors, increasing individual's stress coping ability such as training in psychological, communication and relaxation skills and social support from supervisors, peers and families).
