Police in Lincolnshire are being given two extra days off per year as wellbeing leave in a bid to improve their mental and emotional health.
Lincolnshire Police, which employs around 1,800 people, is believed to be the first force to launch such an initiative in the country.
A statement from the force said it acknowledges the demands placed on officers are "great" and can "take a toll" if they are not given the time to rest and recuperate.
It comes after Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary rated Lincolnshire Police as 'good' for overall effectiveness, preventing crime and tackling anti-social behaviour, investigating crime and reducing reoffending and tackling serious and organised crime.
Officers In Lincolnshire will be entitled to as many as 32 days holiday per year after the change, which will come into effect in April.
