The emotional state of the police personnel working in this emergency situation has led to situations of emotional instability at the individual, family and work levels. This study aims to analyze the emotional state of four police officers who provide security and patrol services in a state of health emergency by COVID-19; they were interviewed in a semi-structured manner. For this study, the qualitative phenomenological design approach was used. The results show that the participants present emotional difficulties such as fear, anxiety, depression, melancholy and stress due to their risk exposure to the state of health emergency.
