WHAT IS A CHAPLAIN?

A police chaplain serves as a support system for law enforcement in times of crisis. They can be volunteers or sworn officers. They come from all faith traditions. Some hold various degrees or certifications in critical incident stress management (CISM). All communication with a chaplain is confidential.

 

It’s well-known that many officers are guarded by nature and can have trouble opening up about their trauma to a psychologist or other mental health professional in a formal environment. Similar to peer support programs, police chaplains can be effective in these cases because they offer a more informal source of support for the affected officer. Police chaplains aren’t there to push a religion on police officers; their role is primarily to listen and offer emotional and spiritual support to those in need.
