Abstract

The present study aims at measuring the sources of stress, the symptoms of stress and anger styles of police officers as psychosocial risk factors. A survey was carried out on 5725 randomly selected police officers in a big city in Turkey. The questionnaire included some personal information. When collecting data, Mayerson's Stress Factor Scale was used to measure the sources of stress. The Psychological Symptom Checklist-SCL-90-R was used to measure the participants' psychological symptoms and the State Trait Anger Scale (STAS) is used to measure anger styles of police officers. When analyzing data, correlations and stepwise multiple regression analysis are used to examine the relationship.
