Ep.79 Why So Many Police Officers Are Leaving - with Professor Sarah Charman and Dr Jemma Tyson

Ep.79 Why So Many Police Officers Are Leaving - with Professor Sarah Charman and Dr Jemma Tyson.

Professor Sarah Charman is a Professor of Criminology, and Dr Jemma Tyson, a senior lecturer in Criminology, both work at the University of Portsmouth.

 You may be aware that they conducted a study entitled ‘Voluntary resignations from the police service: the impact of organisational and occupational stressors on organisational commitment’, that looks at the reasons and rationale behind the exponential increase in voluntary resignations of police officers.

What it's shown is that there's been a 72% increase within twelve months and a 200% increase within ten years, and it's having a massive impact. We talk about the research that was conducted and how they went about doing it. We talk about their findings and the impact, and we look at what's being done from a national and organisational perspective and also by the Federation.

We also talk about the importance of intervention and what can be done to reverse this, and we also talk about next steps for them. It's an incredibly insightful and interesting interview and I think you're really going to enjoy this. 🙌If you like what you heard, then please leave a review.
