Despite the illegality of taking steroids without a prescription and the known dangers of steroid abuse the problem continues to grow in the law enforcement community. In Minneapolis, a police sergeant was charged for possession of steroids. He admitted to being a user of steroids. In Miami, a police officer was arrested for the purchasing human growth hormone kits (HGH) from a dealer. The dealer had also informed Federal officials that the police officer had purchased anabolic steroids from him on four other occasions. In Tampa, a police officer was sentenced to 70 months in jail for exchanging 1,000 ecstasy tablets from police custody for steroids.

There are certainly officers in law enforcement who abuse anabolic-androgen steroids. Most of these officers do so for what they perceive as all the right reasons; to provide them a physical and psychological advantage while performing their jobs. These drugs allow the officer to increase muscle strength and size quickly and easily while increasing physical endurance.

Sure it is. Steroids in of themselves may not cause cop's to lose it and become more violent, their wives leaving them because of genitalia inadequacies(due to the steroids), probably plays a larger role.
The divorce rate among cop's is fairly high, and that will mess with anyone's head.
