The current follow-up study focuses on three issues that detail the original survey. Firstly, the follow-up study investigated to what extent the differences in psychosocial health between police officers and relevant referent groups – as observed in the original survey – are related to differences in demographical background, like age, gender, and level of education. Secondly, the follow-up study investigated to what extent the observed differences in psychosocial health between police officers from various task areas can be explained by differences in work characteristics and/or demographic characteristics. And thirdly, the most relevant work characteristics for taking measures to improve psychosocial health of police officers have been identified in the current study, controlling for demographics.
