When officers in Louisiana were baited into an ambush and killed, it caused fear and anxiety among officers who were left behind. Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is not uncommon among law enforcement officers who have been involved in a shooting or military personnel back from serving in the Middle East. In fact, even those who are not victims but witnesses to a trauma are often just as likely to be stricken with symptoms of PTSD. It’s a debilitating disorder, but the symptoms are highly treatable with the right mental health treatment.
