Based on of factor analysis of collected data, 40 items of 85 items of questionnaires were eliminated and therefore IPSS short form (i.e. IPSS-A) was provided. IPSS-A validity was determined by correlation coefficient between long form and short form (r=0.98 for the 1st factor & r=0.96 for the 2nd factor) and its reliability was identified by test-re-test method (r=0.78 for the 1st factor & r=0.80 for the 2nd factor) and internal consistency «Cronbach Alpha Coefficient», (α=0.93 for the 1st factor & α=0.91 for the 2nd factor). Overall, obtained validity and reliability coefficients for IPSS-A were satisfactory for p0.001. Based on the results of this research IPSS-A can be used in psychological research for identifying police stress.
