Abstract: 

Background and Objectives: Job stress is among the most common illnesses of our age. Studies indicate that job stress can stem from personal factors, nature and characteristics of jobs, organizational roles, organizational structure, relations, organization’s management, etc. Therefore, proper understanding and cognizance of job stress factors and adjusting and reducing them can pave the ground for organization’s improvement and flourishing. The present study aims at investigating job stress level among I. R. I Police University (IRIPU) graduates working in Tehran Police Stations.
Method: The present research is of survey type. The variables impacting job stress dealt with in the present research are: personal features (age and gender), organizational structure, role’s characteristics, training and environmental resources. To assess the impact level of every variable, various methods such as simple and multi-variable regression analysis, Spearman, Man Whitney and CrosKal Wallice correlation coefficient is used. Statistical population of the study is IRIPU graduates (graduated in2001-2006) working in Tehran Police Stations. Statistical sample was randomly selected. With respect to omission of incorrect and incomplete questionnaires 107 correct questionnaires were accepted for statistical analysis.
Findings: According to the findings of the study proved that there was no significant relationship between personnel individual characteristics (age, gender, being married) and environmental resources with personnel job stress; however, there is significant relationship between training, role features, and organizational structure.
Conclusion: Based on multi-variable regression analysis, among independent variables organizational structure had the most part in predicting dependent variable behavior.
