April 12, 2022: Police Contact and Sleep Patterns During Adolescence and Adulthood
The current project assesses associations between police contact, its features and mental and/or physical health repercussions, and indicators of sleep quality and quantity in two national samples of adolescents and/or adults in the United States: The Fragile Families and Child Well-Being Study (FFCWS) and the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health). Findings suggest that strategies may be needed among public health practitioners and law enforcement to mitigate the potential impacts of adverse police contact on sleep health.
