Police PTSD

PTSD at the National Police

As a servant with a recognized occupational disease PTSD you often encounter some problems. That can happen naturally. The phenomenon is apparently fairly new in the police country, so the procedures for dealing with it within the organization will have to be developed. However, I am astonished when I come across a script on the internet from Renske Boekhout, so nothing has been done to this day …

In 2016 Renske wrote an exploratory and advisory thesis on how the National Police could improve its approach to psychosocial health and in particular PTSD from a public value perspective, with a focus on organizational embedding and prevention. With permission from Renske Boekhout I hereby make her thesis available.
