A law enforcement chaplain is a clergyperson with special interest and training for providing pastoral care in the high powered and dangerous world of law enforcement. This pastoral care is offered to all people, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, creed, or religion. It is offered without cost or the taint of proselytizing.
No one is confronted with more situations that demoralize and create emotional, mental, and spiritual burdens than today's law enforcement officer. These burdens also affect the officer's family and other members of his or her department. Law Enforcement agencies need the specialized guidance, counseling and assistance for their officers, families and communities.
The law enforcement chaplain is led in his or her own faith to be available and ready to serve those in need. 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.
Chaplains listen and participate in the workplace of law enforcement officers with empathy and experience, advising calmly in the midst of turmoil and danger and offering assistance when appropriate or requested.
Believing in God is the answer to man's dilemma, the chaplain stands ready to bear witness to the forgiving love and redeeming power of God to all people.
The Chaplaincy provides non-denominational, confidential counseling, stress management, and crisis intervention skills to law enforcement, their families, and support personnel.
A chaplain offers spiritual guidance and assistance to people in crisis situations. They are to serve as a link of communications between people in a crisis and their own clergy. If those who receive counseling ask for further help the chaplain will coordinate such follow-up guidance as is necessary.
The Sheriff's Office has 7 active Chaplains.
