Stress

There is more to live than just police work.  When you are not at work, don't spend all your time doing and thinking about work stuff.  You need to relax your body and your mind.  I have read that your blood pressure goes up when you put on your uniform and armor.  It stays elevated for 24 hours.

That means when you are off, you could still have a heart attack or other medical incident related to your job.  Be sure you spend some time to relax.  You need to bring your heart rate and blood pressure back to normal.

Don't worry about work.  Don't drink too much.  Don't forget to get some good exercise.  It's important to take care of your body.  Police work can be a very physical job and you need to be in good shape; that's what the SGT Says.
