Updated: Oct 30, 2023

When it comes to what stresses police officers out, it's not the car chases, or the threat of getting shot at, or even killed.

Ask Cherie Castellano, director of Cop2Cop, a 24-hour-hotline that fields up to 850 phone calls every month for stressed-out police officers, and she'll tell you the worst part of an officer's job is secondhand trauma: exposure to murders, car accidents, seeing hurt kids, all the horrible things police have to deal with on a daily basis. But she says there's a close No. 2. Some argue it may even be No. 1. And it happens after the car chases are over.
