My husband is chronically sleep deprived. He is always on call over the homicide unit. He gets called for every suicide and suspicious death. Every time there is a use of force on the police dept. they call him. If the watch commander even thinks they need a detective to "look around" they call. This means that all hours of the night, our phone rings. about two weeks ago he had one homicide , left out at 230 am, got home at 8pm the same day, literally walked in the door and had the phone ring from another homicide. Had to go back out. He worked without sleep 72 hours. it happens more often than i would like. its really not good. He is already a diabetic and i know this stuff interferes with his ability to take his insulin on schedule. but it is what it is. He is a genius in crime solving and dedicated to the job. and we just do our best to keep him healthy. But i don't know how he does it. I would be an idiot after one night without sleep.....

After doing a college speech on the dangers of sleep deprivation, I believe the link between good health and adequate sleep is strong. I definately try to make quality and quantity sleep a priority now and I am concerned about trying to maintain that habit once I am a law enforcement officer.
