We discuss the problem of the stress influence on the performance of law enforcement officers. The importance of the stress connection with psychological and psychophysical functioning is caused by the fact that many professional tasks solving is possible only in case of effective adaptation to the difficult conditions of work. The concepts such as stress and performance, as well as the mechanisms of biological adaptation to stress and the effects of stress on the individual police officer, are considered. Attention is paid to the differences between male and female stress and causes of stress in occupations with a large amount of communication activity. We conducted an empirical study in which we investigated the relationship of stress severity and the performance of law enforcement officers, as well as the differences in law enforcement employees performance depending on stress presence, its level, and gender.

Keywords: stress, performance, law enforcement employees, police stress, impact of stress on performance, male and female stress, impact of stress.

Column: Psychology of Professional Activity
