Job stresses hit­ting po­lice

Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

EIGHT out of 10 po­lice are show­ing signs of anx­i­ety or de­pres­sion due to over­work, it is claimed.

Po­lice Fed­er­a­tion chair­man Calum McLeod said the “star­tling” fig­ure, from a sur­vey, was driven by fall­ing po­lice numbers.

He said cuts meant of­fi­cers do not get enough sup­port and ef­forts to pro­vide coun­selling are hit by long NHS wait­ing lists.

Mr MacLeod added: “The Gov­ern­ment is say­ing we need to do more for less – all you get for less is less.”
