The Chaplains Program began in August 1986 as a result of a recognized need seen by our department and an interest brought forth by several local clergy persons.
The Chaplains Program is aimed at providing a clergy counseling service to both the police and civilian community. It involves a select group of clergy who are provided the essential guidelines for handling emergency matters such as:
- Death Notifications
- Aggravated Domestic Problems
- Attempted Suicides
This service provides a responsible, denominationally endorsed member of the clergy who is available to assist police when requested.
