Question Description

In a paper 3-5 pages

You and your partner are a two-person patrol in a rural district of Kansas for a county sheriff’s office. Your area of responsibility is right in the middle of “Tornado Alley.” Two weeks ago, a category 4 tornado touched down at the north end of a town in your jurisdiction and hit a day care. Twenty-two children were in the day care with five care providers. Most of the children were huddled with four of the providers at one end of the structure, where there was little damage. Five of the children, who took shelter with one of the care providers in the other end of the building, were pulled out of the building by the tornado. Four of the children and the caretaker that had been with them were found on a nearby street, all dead from blunt trauma. The fifth child has not been found. The ages of the children are 3–5 years old.

Your partner is a young man with a wife of five years. They have two children, ages 3 and 4. When the children’s bodies were found, he started to cry. He did his job the entire time with tears in his eyes. You and your partner searched for almost 36 hours without sleep for the missing child, to no avail. Since this incident, your partner has all but stopped speaking. He misses radio calls and is no longer the observant partner that you had prior to the incident with the tornado strike. You thought it would be just a day or two until he recovered, but he has not rebounded, and it is going on the third week. You have concern for his and your safety as well as the safety of the public.

You spoke to him about it, and he told you to mind your own business. The sergeant came to you and asked about your partner because he noticed the symptoms. The sergeant related that he had spoken to the watch commander and was instructed to have you prepare a report of observations, an assessment of the problem, and recommendations for getting the problem solved.

In a report of 3–5 pages to the watch commander of the sheriff’s department patrol bureau, explain your concerns about the behavior of your partner. Identify that your relationship prior to 3 weeks ago was excellent. Explain how you believe this is incident driven and why. Determine at least 2 possible disorders that may be impacting your partner. Provide the watch commander with 2 alternatives in terms of getting your partner back on track.

  • Address the following as a group in 3–4 pages:
    • Provide at least 2 recommendations for rehabilitating your partner. Explain in detail.
    • Consider what you are going to tell the other deputies when they ask why your partner is relieved of duty.
  • Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.

Running head: MENTAL HEALTH


Mental Health



Working in the law enforcement can at times be difficult and this can take a toll on the
mental health of the law enforcers. This is because the law enforcers have a high probability
of encountering with worst of what humankind has to offer. According to statistics, one in
four policemen has thoughts of committing suicide at one point in their life (Velden et al.,
2013). This brings to light the ugly truth that the men and women in uniform suffer from
mental health disorders as a by-product of their work and this is often swept under the rug.
Notably, the higher rates of mental health problems lead to high rates of alcohol abuse
amongst other habits, as those that work in the law enforcement try to cope with the situation.
Adding salt to injury is the fact that many of those that work in law enforcement have
developed a culture of silence on matters that concern their mental health. This may partly be
due to their training which has conditioned them to be tough. They do not appreciate the fact
that mental health disorders are like any other diseases and one cannot recover by just
pushing through them. Additionally, there are a lot of stigmas that are associated with the
