The project develops work undertaken by the University of Cambridge with the European Working Conditions Survey (EWCS)- looking at job quality- and expands this into the area of contemporary policing, with a specific focus on trauma exposure and trauma management. The national study will be the first to address the prevalence of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) in the UK police alongside access to treatment pathways and force-level interventions. The study will also consider how experiences of trauma management influence perceptions of decent work in the current labour market.
