  • Stress release

    Hey everyone, I am new to this board. And I tried to do a search and sorry if this came up already. But anyways here it is.

    What do you guys do as LEO's to release stress while off duty.

    Also, if you do have a stress situation such as a suicidal person or a child's death, that really hits home. How do you cope with that while your on duty.

    Thank you in advance

      When I was active I would either go to the shooting range, workout or reload ammo. The reloading was probably the best for getting rid of stress.

          A regular death or suicide I'm use to and won't bother me to much. However the death of a child you never get use too. I usually go sit on the beach and watch the waves come in when I get the chance. It's my way of relieveing stress.

            I for one, will go golfing if I am kinda stress out. Wait a second, that causes me more stress.

            I might go ride bike or go work out. But I try to stay away from the budlight when I am kinda stress, they seem to go down way to easy if your stressed.

                  It won't hit you until you're off-duty.

                  Each person needs to cope with it differently. If there's a traumatic incident on my shift, a bunch of us will usually have choir practice after the shift ends, to talk about it. It's very comfortable, and really helps me, to be amongst other cops, who understand such things. After that, I go home to give my wife & children some extra hugs before I go to bed myself.

                      If somethings really tramatic I call another officer and talk to them about it.

                      Day to day, I just leave work at work; there's a certain place on my way home that I just decided I'm no longer a cop. I become a cop again when I pass the same place on the way to work the next day. When I'm at home, I'm not a cop. I don't think like a cop; I turn it off. That doesn't mean I turn off being safe; I'm still alert to my surroundings and I carry my gun and radio everywhere (policy).

                        I just kick back and watch some tv or play a video game on the computer or PS2. I like to play sports video games, it keeps my concentration on something else besides work. I find that watching tv my mind can kinda wander back to work a little more. Video games sound kinda childish to some, but they work really well for me. There is another guy at the PD who plays them too.

                          I can understand leaving work at work. But if you do get together for a little BBQ with other officers do you guys talk about work or is that forbidden.

                          This may be off the subject, but when LEO talk about stressful situations off of work like over couple of beers or maybe at a BBQ.

                            I work out at the gym everyday after work. Relives the stress of the job and also I agree with Bodie. This forum helps alot. When I've had some serious stress I let it out on the forum and most everybody is supportive. Yes even Bodie. Still owe you for the support last year Bodie, I haven't forgot

                              Well, there are no other officers in town. The nearest one is 90 miles away by plane....

                              However, you can still talk shop and turn it off. It takes some practice.
