Cumulative Career Trauma Stress, or CCTS," This is what many Chicago Police Officers are suffering from. After years of being battered by the media, politicians, the majority of citizens, and the Bosses. In addition to an unfair disciplinary process that is often influenced by public opinion to the detriment of the average P.O.
All things combined, the only true supporters of men and women doing this job are their families. And sometimes that support is not there. And they ask why are the Police Officers not aggressive any more? The answer is simple, why should they be?
They look for a quick fix, and say we will be supported, but years of abuse are not going to be forgiven overnight. The damage is done and may not be reversible.
