Abstract
It is necessary to assess the cardiovascular risks of police officers in order to address the issue of police officer safety, as well as the issue of public safety. In the past there has been a tendency to determine these risks according to the presence or absence of demonstrable ischaemia. Increased understanding of pathophysiology of coronary vascular disease leads to a different approach to this problem. This modified approach is discussed.
