Abstract: There has been numerous studies carried on among police officers and stress with contradictory results. Specifically, demographic factors have been studied as an intervening variable among stress and burnout. But still, further studies are needed to establish the relationship of demographic factors with police stress. The current study aims to find differences in police stress, coping, burnout and moral reasoning among police officers in Tamil Nadu. Using the T test we found that there is no difference in stress experienced by male and female officers. Similarly, there is no difference in moral reasoning levels of male and female officers. Differences were found in burnout and coping styles used by male and female officers. This shows that male and female officers cope differently to stressful situations and so experience burnout differentially.
