First of all, I'm only a Patrol Officer not a General. JK/LMAO 


Time off is key.  I try not bringing my job home with me.  My off time is my own, not the Departments.  This is time for my family and me.  Hobbies and keeping active helps.

Pete114 is right.  You leave it at the office, however sometimes that is very difficult. Some of us joke around with one another.  When it is serious, of course whether you like it or not,  there is professional help!  In our department, when I was working, we had a Police Chaplain to help us get thru it.   Cope by joking, talking to one another, Prayer, Police Chaplain, Professional help if it is deep and of course the Love of Family.

I try very hard not to bring my day home with me. If I still need to whind down after shift I may drive around or there is a secret spot I like to go to and clear my head. The key is to not bring it home. It is two differant worlds.
