The purpose of this study is to identify the component parts of the subjective vitality in the officials and other personnel of internal affairs divisions and to reveal the difference between these data and those of similar-ranked professionals in civilian organizations. On the conceptual level one's subjective vitality is viewed through the personality's attitude to the genesis of its inner forces compared to the scale and feasibility of one's projected plans in various areas of activity. Based on the subject-activity approach, the concept of personality's psychological safety and the resource-based concept of stress we actualize the role of subjective vitality in health behavior. 80 individuals were examined using the Russian adaptation (made by Alexandrova L.A) of the methodology for identifying the subjective vitality developed by R. Ryan and C.Frederic within the framework of the self-determination theory. The study found that civilian staff and officials of the internal affairs divisions have the lowest subjective vitality, whereas in the officers of internal affairs divisions it is near average. It is revealed that women working within the Internal Affairs are more distinguished by "unstable vitality".

Keywords: professional stress, health behavior, subjective vitality, staff of civilian organizations, heads and staff of internal affairs divisions, psychological monitoring, psychological support
