  1. More and more I worry because it’s the less the inmates I deal with that give me stress but the new “too cool for this job” teenagers my agency is hiring. I can’t rely on them to respond to codes, nor do simple things in the housing units and it seems the agency is bending over backwards to defend these types more than professional tested Officers. I’m not in a position to call them out, but they are openly disrespectful and at times outright refuse to do their duty, it seems no one is concerned as long as the job gets done by someone.

  2. On my days off I have three categories for each day, or all in one day. My rule is, "If I write it down, I have to do it."

    DT=Down Time (be by myself and recover.)

    PT= Personal Time (work out at home +hobbies)

    QT= Quality Time (Family Time. Conversations. Date night.)

  3. stress: the confusion created when one's mind overrides the body's basic desire to choke the living shit out of some asshole who desperately deserves it.

  4. Got a new job installing pavers for Creative curbing my uncle's business doing a lot of work trying to save up for the Academy I really appreciate the videos they help out a lot thank you

  5. Expanding on this further : the better the health and fitness of the officer, the less traumatic the physiological reaction to stressors.

    I can't imagine being massively out of shape when those adrenaline spiking "pucker factor" moments occur. Heart attack city if you're not prepared mentally, emotionally and physically.

  6. Biggest thing for me was shutting down the "first responder mindset" when off duty. When I first entered the fire service I was that guy. The overly professional, stone faced, no emotions rookie. I had this same mentality off duty and it wears you down. When I mentioned making the switch to LE to my family (also LE) the biggest thing they stressed was learning to turn off that mindset when you're off duty and have friends who are not in LE.

  7. I mow Lawns on the side it supplements my income and allows me to see the good work I do, actually seeing a positive result is very rewarding.

  8. Really enjoyed the video, I am taking EMT-B classes right now and one of the first things we talked about was first responder stress, what types of stresses we might face as a EMT.

  9. I work at a hospital which can be pretty high intensity. One of my mechanisms is to inject a little fun into the boring, mundane daily tasks. Humming while checking fire extinguishers, sending memes to coworkers while working on reports, doing a little dance while patrolling empty parts of the hospital, etc.

    My reasoning is that if I'm already stressed about my day, then those critical incidents are just going to hit me harder. If I keep most of my day lighthearted, then I'm more able to decompress and de-stress in the slower parts of my day. And it helps me enjoy being at work.

  10. That "short term" stress is a booger because you don't realize it's stress in the moment. It's high intensity and it happens quick. You don't realize you're stressed in the moment because the adrenaline is pumping. It's what we love as LEO's but we don't realize the strain it puts on us mentally because we only deal with it after the fact.
