The Internet, as well as many written sources, suggest that police officers engage in an unusually high number of maladaptive behaviors. That is, they are thought to have high divorce, suicide, alcoholism, and domestic violence rates. This webinar will first review the research that debunks these misconceptions and then discuss some reasons why the law enforcement community and many police psychologists still cling to these misconceptions. The webinar will conclude with some new analyses on the “profile” of law enforcement suicides.
