We care about the psychological distress of police employees

The help of psychologists and the support of police confidants

This is why, years ago, 24-hour emergency psychological assistance for police officers was introduced which, in addition to psychological assistance and support provided by psychologists employed by the police and police officer confidants, provides for the immediate easing of emotional distress when a tragic or particularly shocking traumatic event is experienced. Employees in the police are also trained for conflict management, which is an integral part of strengthening good mutual relations in the police organisation, advisers warn about undesired behaviour that hurts the dignity of employees, while psychologists also help in employment selection procedures.
