The Police Chaplain Program is comprised of professional clergy members who volunteer their services to department employees, their families, and members of the community during times of crisis, sorrow, or conflict.
Police Chaplains participate in ride-alongs and conduct station visits. They are on-call 24 hours a day to assist police personnel with a variety of situations in the field such as death notifications, child deaths, lost or missing persons, and suicides. Our Police Chaplains may also be requested to respond to major incidents and disasters such as plane crashes, multiple injury incidents, officer involved shootings and to assist with crisis intervention. Our Police Chaplains donate several hundred hours to the community and department each year.
For additional information or to apply, please contact the Commander Jeff Smith at (714) 245-8701.
