Destructive acts against co-workers and organizations are not rare or isolated incidents. In an age of takeovers, mergers, and down-sizing, with people frequently laid off of fired, employee emotion is a force to be reckoned with. The loss of a job or blatant unfair treatment can be as traumatic as the loss of a loved one. A fired employee seldom if ever receives condolence or support.
To add to this, we have experienced and increase in the frequency of stressful or violent incidents. Unfortunately, many employers know little about who they are hiring. Due to this, many employees are supervised in ways likely to bring out their worst characteristics that results in them being separated from the organization.
The men and women of law enforcement encounter unique stress and health issues daily. Although these stressful situations affect the personality and mentality most have ample training for the skills they need to perform their job, but few are prepared for the personal stress they encounter. The effects of law enforcement stress are examined regarding their impact upon the mind, body, and spirit. The focus of this course will be on the stressors most relevant to police officers, dispatchers, criminal investigators, and non-sworn emergency service personnel.
