The present study was carried out to investigate the differences in the levels of depression, anxiety and stress among junior and senior police officers of Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa province of Pakistan. The inquiry included 315 police officers from different districts of the understudied province. Depression Anxiety and Stress Scale (Lovibond & Lovibond, 1995) was administered. It was hypothesized that junior police officers would project higher levels of depression, anxiety and stress as compared to senior police officers. The results supported the hypothesis on highly significant differences and were consistent with the earlier studies of similar nature
