The aim of the study was to establish the relationship between stress at work, burnout syndrome and coping strategies, the impact of the perceived stress at work and coping strategies on the level of burnout and the predictors of burnout syndrome in a group of police officers. Four hundred thirty-seven policemen participated in the study. Their mean age was 35.15 years (SD = 6.76). The following techniques were used in the study: the Perceived Job Stress Characteristics Questionnaire, the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) and the Coping Inventory Orientation to Problem Experienced (COPE) to measure the level of coping strategies. The results confirmed the relationship between the perceived stress at work, burnout syndrome and coping strategies with stress. The obtained data indicated that coping strategies play a mediating role between job stress and burnout syndrome. Three factors related to work and four coping strategies appeared to constitute predictors of burnout syndrome in police officers.
