LIRA, Paula Soares; PEREZ-NEBRA, Amalia Raquel  and  QUEIROGA, Fabiana. Burnout integrated model among Police in the Federal District: a conceptual expansion. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2021, vol.21, n.3, pp. 1621-1630. ISSN 1984-6657.

Identifying criminal infractions through police investigation is among the attributions of the Civil Police. The extensive workload and the advancement of violence expose police officers to the risk of becoming ill due to burnout. The present study aims to test an integrated model in which burnout will be predicted by the demands and resources of the work. The instruments were applied online and distributed in the police intranet. One hundred and sixty-four police officers participated, 56.4% men, with an average age of 40.90 years (SD = 8.22) and 12 years of work experience (SD = 7.87). The empirical model was tested with dual mediation of perceived stress (person-organisation adjustment) and recovery experiences. Task and social characteristics negatively predict burnout and are therefore protective variables. Person-organization adjustment and recovery are protective mediators of these relationships. The results contribute to expanding the literature about the health-disease process of professionals related to public security.
