At the present stage of development of Ukraine, there is an increase in crime because of various reasons, including army hostilities in the east of the country. That is why the examined problem becomes really important. The issues of psychological support for police officers were studied by many scientists, but the integral concept of this problem has not been developed yet. We examined the 35-year old employees the Ministry of Internal Affairs with the help of the set of standardized psychological diagnostic techniques: Cattell’s Sixteen Personality Factor Questionnaire, Career Anchors Questionnaire, Rokeach Value Survey, Social intelligence of O.Sullivan, M.Guilford.
