Police officers perform an increasingly difficult job. A variety of factors, including frequent exposure to violence, human indecency and a seemingly dwindling respect for law enforcement authority, play a critical role in generating chronic stress in officers. Research indicates chronic stress levels in police personnel directly impact job performance. Chronic stress can also have profound implications on the work-life balance of officers. Officers who lack effective stress coping strategies find themselves struggling with both their home and professional well-being; within this struggle, an officer may experience job dissatisfaction. This can lead to unhealthy or unsafe behaviors and may become a toxic influence to an agency workplace.
This session identifies key strategies to overcome officer dissatisfaction in an organization:
- Prevention techniques will not only uncover indicators of life dissatisfaction in police applicants, but also explore areas within the organization which affect job satisfaction.
- Identification strategies will discuss early detection of officer job dissatisfaction, causal factors, and possible origins.
- Mitigation strategies to assist officers in restoring a proper work-life balance, and simple approaches to improve job satisfaction.
