More and more researchers addressed many resilience theory and concept model from the first wave in1970’s, and today, the fields of resilience have extended healthy psychology and positive psychology and other field. But, because of different view of resilience level and concept, there is not consistent view about it. Although, the core concept of resilience which help individual to get rid of the negative affection after disaster have been paying attention in the fields. Recently research pay attentions to either resilience evaluate or interrupt. On this basis, we focus on the resilience of Chinese police officer. They are the group of experienced lots of negative incident and more high risk events than normal people. This work wills trying to construct the resilience model of police by viewed theory, and interview with police officer.
