SOUZA, Edinilsa Ramos de; SCHENKER, Miriam; CONSTANTINO, Patrícia  e  CORREIA, Bruna Soares Chaves. Consumption of licit and illicit substances by police officers in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2013, vol.18, n.3, pp.667-676. ISSN 1413-8123.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S1413-81232013000300012.

The consumption of psychoactive substances by civil and military police of the city of Rio de Janeiro was investigated. Data was gathered from two cross-sectional studies on a questionnaire on work and health conditions given to a sample from the two corporations. The results show higher frequencies of regular consumption of tobacco (23.3% by civil police and 19.1% by military police), daily use of alcohol (12% by civil police and 11% by military police) and tranquilizers in the past year (13.3% by civil police and 10.1% by military police). The consumption of marijuana among officers was 0.1% by civil police and 1.1% by military police, and cocaine use among the military police was 1.1%. Alcohol consumption proved to be intense and causes problems at work and in the social and family relationships of these officers. The need for preventive policies for addiction and the possible underestimation of information on illicit substances is emphasized.
