This chapter examines the practical side of dealing proactively with the stress encountered by police officers on a daily basis, stress that when dismissed as part of the job generates disastrous outcomes. The specific emphasis is on understanding critical incident stress & its impact. A practical outline of mandatory training, both at the academy & on the job, is presented, including an expanded definition of critical incident stress & a set of training modules that incorporate debriefing procedures.
