Mental Health: Besides Morale the increased overtime also affects the mental health of officers, the following quotes are directly from the Job Satisfaction Survey of Bexar County Deputies.

“Being forced to work large amounts of overtime every week takes a toll on my mental health I feel distant from my family. I’m unable to attend family gatherings or holiday events due to the lack of staffing that I have no control over at the jail.”

“I’m tired of working! I’ve doubled my alcohol intake due to Bexar County sheriff office.”

“I think overall mental health of deputies has become a secondary concern. Time away from work is limited in possibility and in some work environments stress levels are too high.” 

“My over mental and physical health have diminished due to the overtime that I am forced to work at with BCSO. I have no time for college, family, or to work out and maintain a healthy lifestyle.” “It is incredibly unhealthy the lack of sleep we are allowed to get regularly and it is criminal how little sleep people get who are trying to get their peace officers license. Often people sleep once every 2 or three days for 3-4 hours.”

For a more in-depth look at the survey, please take the time to review and read the DSABC Survey it’s disheartening to see what’s really going on inside. https://dsabc.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/DSABC_Satisfaction_Report_FIN2.pdf
