Our study established clear demographic, mental health/physical injury, and physical performance data to be collected in a law enforcement recruit training program for injury surveillance and performance monitoring. Furthermore, we identified several items that were classified as relevant, but unlikely to be reported truthfully. These items which can help inform current practice and assist clinicians to determine the trustfulness of information received by patients when working within law enforcement environments.
An augmented Delphi consensus process, with initial item generation occurring via online, one-on-one, semi-structured interviews, was conducted and followed by one survey round. Participants represented one-of-six target groups: Police officers; Police physical training staff; Police occupational health and safety staff; elite sport high performance staff; military high-performance staff; physical activity injury epidemiologists.
