The Chaplain Unit was established for the purpose of providing spiritual and emotional support to all members of the Department, their families, and members of the public. Our Chaplains serve on a voluntary basis and also assist victims of crime and their families when needed and upon request. The Chaplain Unit strives to establish and maintain an attitude of cooperation between the Department and the residents of the community.
Chaplains will serve as a resource for Department personnel when dealing with the public in tragic incidents, including death notifications. They will provide counseling, spiritual guidance, and insight for Department personnel and their families. Chaplains will also attend Department functions including promotions and retirements.
