LIPP, Marilda E. Novaes. Stress and quality of life of senior brazilian police officers. Rev. bras.ter. cogn. [online]. 2016, vol.12, n.2, pp. 100-104. ISSN 1808-5687.

This study investigated the levels of occupational stress and quality of life in the police force in four Brazilian states, using for comparison data from a Sao Paulo study already published. Participants were 1,117 high-ranking police officers. The mean age was 40 years with a standard deviation of 9 and 61% of them were male. It was found that the police officers consider their job to be very stressful and between 43% and 57% exhibited symptoms of stress. The most common symptoms were irritability and feeling constantly tired. The standard of quality of life was found to be poor, primarily with regard to health. The study shows that there is a need for action for organizational change within the civil police institution itself in order to stimulate a change in life habits, as well as the acquisition of coping strategies that can promote a better quality of life among public security personnel in the country.
