No direct copaganda, but some cop contestants will explain their occupation and how it relates to the game. Its a major storyline for certain contestants' journey in Cagayan (S28), Game Changers (S28), and Winners at War (S40).

Yes, a contestant from seasons 35 and 40 suffers from PTSD. Also, while I don't think he suffers from it, Gabler from 43 mentions it as well.
