Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with a brief review of studies of police stress. The research described in thr chapter is an attempt to bridge this gap by investigating stressors experienced by police officers in Singapore, the ways in which they cope with these stressors and the relationship of this soping s and coping to health and well-being. This research was conducted in two phases. Phase I, which is the focus of the chapter, used interviews and written questionnaires to examine the types of stressful events experienced by the officers, their ways of coping with stress, and their general well-being. Phase II was concerned with the role of stress and hostility in cardiovascular responses. Relationships between measures of stress and well-being really provide only a superficial view of the stress process.
