The Police Chaplain Program creates a partnership with various
faith-based leaders of a community to respond and assist police and other law
enforcement agencies providing an overall better quality to the citizens of
cities and communities.
The goal is that by having the Police
and Clergy working together during times of crisis or incidents, that a more
comprehensive response will be given to those in need.
The faith-based leaders will
perform tasks of a more emotional, social or spiritual nature while the
officers handles those tasks that are of a law enforcement nature.
The role of the Chaplain is to be
the ‘balancer.’The Police Chaplain is
to provide support for Police Officer and civilians in their needs. Chaplains
are there to provide appropriate assistance, advice, comfort, counsel and
referrals to those in need who may request support.
The Police Chaplain Program provides promotion, training,
consultation and encouragement to chaplains and the law enforcement community.
We are members of the International Conference of Police Chaplains and offer The Basic Chaplain Twelve Core Courses of training from the ICPC.
