Policemen completed a self administered Police Stress Questionnaire of McCreary and Thompson; burnout was assessed by Maslach Questionnaire of Burnout (MBQ). Characteristics of the relationship between occupational stress and burnout among police officers were analyzed by comparing criminal and municipal police officer’s occupational stress in association with burnout, by assessing the burnout in different structural subdivisions.
