Organizational stress generally refers to the organizational context in which officers work and is differentiated from operational stress (occupational dangers and exposure to risk). Examples of organizational stressors in policing and corrections include bureaucratic red tape, work schedules, workload, disciplinary culture, lack of internal procedural justice, and lack of support by supervisors. Increasingly, the research evidence indicates that organizational stressors may pose far greater consequences to officer health and wellness than operational ones.

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • the extant research on police and correctional officers’ stress
  • organizational stressors unique to law enforcement and corrections organizations
  • impacts on officer health and wellness, and
  • mitigating factors as well as strategies that individual officers and their organizations can employ to reduce the harmful effects of organizational stress.

About the National Policing Institute: Formerly known as the National Police Foundation, the National Policing Institute’s mission is to pursue excellence in policing through innovation and science. It is the oldest nationally-known, non-profit, non-partisan, and non-membership-driven organization dedicated to improving America’s most noble profession – policing.

The National Policing Institute has been on the cutting edge of police innovation for over 50 years since it was established by the Ford Foundation as a result of the President’s Commission on the Challenge of Crime in a Free Society (1967) and the related conclusions of the Kerner and Eisenhower Commissions, taking place during the same era.
