The John Wayne Syndrome
Police officers are expected to cope with anything - just like John Wayne.
The reality is different. Far from being the figment of a scriptwriter's imagination, each officer is an ordinary vulnerable human being.
With increasing pressure on k the force, more and more of them are suffering from stress-related illness.
The remedy is for them to forget about John Wayne, and learn how to handle stress more effectively. This will not only protect their own health and relationships but will make them more likely to avoid incidents which may harm, and even kill those they are supposed to serve - the public.
