The Chaplain’s ministry provides a source of strength to the Law Enforcement Officers and their families, other Department members, the community, and the incarcerated. This pastoral care is offered to all people, regardless of race, sex, creed, or religion. The duties of the Police Chaplains include ministering to Officers and their families in times of injury, illness, or death; counseling Officers and family members with problems they may be experiencing; offering instruction in stress management, ethics, death and dying; assisting in death notification or suicide
incidents; victim assistance; and being on call for situations such as disasters, hostage negotiations, accidents, etc. to support Officers as well as citizens. The Police Chaplain is another important segment of Community Policing acting as aliaison between the Department, the Officers and their families, as well as our citizens.
