Job stress within the realm of law enforcement is very common among officers due to the nature of the job itself. Law enforcement officers within the United States are exposed to constant dangers within their respective communities. It is important to investigate how this stress affects officer behavior and more importantly how it affects their ability to do their jobs. For the purposes of this study, a small police department was offered a short survey that measured the amount of stress the officer has endured inside and outside of work. Addressing the issue of the impact that stress has on police officers could potentially help identify ways to combat job stress among officers and explain negative police perceptions in America.
