For police professionals, there have been additional levels of complexity and a steep learning curve in adding principles of infection control, social distancing and health security to their public protection functions. Police have experienced the challenge of enforcing rapidly changing regulations around social distancing, isolation and public safety standards. Police have also been highly visible within the community during the shutdown and have frequently been a target for public anger and frustration.
Drawing on a survey of 665 police professionals from all states and territories in Australia, this paper explores the tensions experienced during the COVID-19 response, including personal and family health, mental and emotional wellbeing, workload pressures and organisational stressors. The survey asked police to identify the most and least helpful things that their employer did throughout the pandemic to support staff and to determine the key messages that they would like to communicate to management. This paper seeks to investigate the lessons that can be learnt, and establish the key priorities for future pandemic or similar event preparation.
