This chapter examines the predictors of psychological stress among police personnel and the role that emotional intelligence might play in moderating the relationship between the determinants of psychological stress and the subjective experience of stress itself. The results of multiple hierarchical regression revealed that factors such as inflexible work schedules, work–family conflict, political interference and lack of fairness significantly influenced stress. Moreover, emotional intelligence was found to buffer the relationship between a number of stressors and the experience of stress. The findings of the study suggest that those who possess the qualities of an emotionally intelligent person will deal with the stressors in an appropriate way, which may eventually prevent an individual from experiencing stress.

Keywords:   psychological stress, police personnel, emotional intelligence, inflexible work schedules, work–family conflict, political interference
