This study examines alcohol use and other health related behaviours in a sample of Australian police officers. The participants were surveyed at two times points: firstly as they underwent initial training before becoming operational police officers; secondly after they had completed 12 months of operational duties. The number of female officers, but not male officers, who reported drinking at harmful levels increased over time.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
