Author information

  • 1Medical Sociology Düsseldorf University.


This study assessed responses to the Occupational Stress Indicator in the Naperville Police Department. This 40% sample of 49 police officers were compared against population norms for employed workers in a range of occupations. Although the police officers perceived less stress from "factors intrinsic to the job", they expressed greater job-related pressure from "organizational structure and climate". They also rated greater the competitiveness and assertiveness in their work behavior.
