Police officers aren't the only ones in public safety who may face added health risks. Past studies have also shown that firefighters may be more likely to develop testicular, prostate, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and multiple myeloma cancers, compared with other people, Medical News Today reported.

And MSNBC reported that the act of fighting a fire raises the risk of heart attack by as much as 100 times, according to a study in the New England Journal of Medicine

Researchers also found a link between working for more than 30 years as a police officer and developing brain cancer or Hodgkin's lymphoma.

And current work as a police officer was linked with an eight times increased risk of suicide, compared with past work as a police officer, researchers found.
