||Frequently exposed to traumatic events, some police officers are subject to post-traumatic stress disorder. The objective of this study was to evaluate the risk factors as well as the coping factors that facilitate the adaptation of these workers following their involvement in such events. It involved 169 volunteers from the Police Department of the City of Montreal, among whom 132 had been exposed to at least one traumatic event. Data were collected by means of interviews and questionnaires, and subjected to multivariate statistical analyses aimed at highlighting the main predictive factors. Findings are discussed.
