Previous research demonstrated that police stress negatively affects sleep quality with coping skills moderating this association (Hartley et al., 2014). The present study aims to expand on these findings by including other work-related variables that may impact sleep quality using a sample of 125 law enforcement officers (80.8% male Mage of 41.75 years (SD=10.75)). Results indicated that coping, police stress, and organizational support were associated with sleep quality. The total model accounts for 41% of the variance on sleep quality, with coping and operational stress being the best predictors of sleep quality.
