Steffi Tauscher - The Police Officer
Steffi Tauscher works as a police officer in Munich. She is curious to see if spending 72 hours in the Swedish nature can help her disconnect from her stressful life.
Describe your stressful everyday life as a Police Officer
Not knowing what will happen during the shift is a stressful part of the job. If there is an operation, I have to give a hundred percent from one second to the next. I have to give empathy to victims of crimes right after the crime has taken place, and if there is an act of housebreaking, robbery or rape I sometimes have to take care of relatives while dealing with a case of death.
What is the most stressful part of your job as a Police Officer?
Stressful everyday life happens every shift and you never know what is coming next.
What are your expectations of the stay in Sweden’s nature?
I am looking forward to calming down in a surrounding that I do not know, gathering experience about how to calm down easily, while spending time in nature and chatting with people I do not know.
The 72 Hour Cabin
"This morning when I opened my eyes, the first thing I saw was the lake and the tall trees and I realised that I'm truly here and it's not a dream! I kept staring at it for a long period of time before finally dragging myself out of the comfy covers." - Baqer Keshwani, participant in The 72 Hour CabinBack
