Abstract

Problems in studying occupational stress within the police service are identified and the paucity of work on operational duties as potential stressors are discussed. The present study reports the results of a factor analysisof operational stressors (N = 601 serving British police officers) that revealed three factors. exposure to death and disaster; violence and injury; sexual crime. These were demonstrated to be reliable scales and were included in logistic regression models together with a range of demographic and psychological variables. Models were applied to men and women separately, which showed there to be different predictors of the likelihood of suffering distress (measured by the General Health Questionnaire, GHQ) in terms of the officer's gender and operational role. Overall the model for women officers was better at predicting psychological distress than that for men. Thesefindings are related to aspects of the police occupational culture. Further discussion is offered that conceptualizes police operational stressors astraumatic, routine and vicarious. Finally, some implications are drawn forthe provision of stress intervention in the light of this differentiation.
