(Full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

In the collective labor agreement (CLA) of 2015-2017, the Directorate-General for Police, the National Police (NP) and the police trade unions have agreed on a policy of integrated health management. Application of this agreement implies a shift from reactive to preventive policy. In order to facilitate this shift, the CLA states the importance of ‘gaining insight into factors that cause work overload of employees and how this overload can be reduced or prevented’.

The aim of the study is to ‘provide insight into the mechanisms that lead to work overload or underload of police personnel’. The acquired insights should inform decision making about possible measures to prevent or strongly reduce work overload or underload.

The central research question is: What is the nature of the mechanisms that lead to work overload or underload of police personnel?
