Big Increase in Officers Taking Sick Leave Because of Mental Health Problems

Post by Beachcomber on Mon Jul 24, 2017 7:17 pm

The number of police officers taking sick leave because of mental health problems has nearly doubled in just six years.

The London’s Met saw a drastic 72 per cent hike in the number of sick days taken because of psychological health, despite the force counting 1,275 fewer officers than six years ago.

Figures acquired under a Freedom of Information Act by 5 News showed the difference in the number of sick days taken by police across England and Wales between 2010-11 and 2016-17.

Overall, days off because of poor mental health rose by 98 per cent.

Forces had many different classification categories for sickness classed as "psychological", including stress, depression, anxiety, psychological disorder, family bereavement, post-traumatic stress disorder, insomnia, post-natal depression and trauma

This must be having a very significant effect on the efficiency of the Police Forces, as the officers most affected are often those who work hardest.
Those left working have even more pressure to fill in. Police numbers really need to be improved back to 2008 levels.
I would start by reducing PCSOs in favour of warranted officers. Some PCSOs would be suitable to upgrade.
