The Sheriff's Department Chaplain Program is a volunteer unit that creates a partnership with various faith-based leaders of a community to respond and assist the Sheriff's Department and other law enforcement agencies providing an overall better quality to the citizens of the county and the communities we serve. By having the Sheriff's Department working with the clergy during times of crisis or incidents, the goal is to provide a more comprehensive response to those in need.
The role of the chaplain is to provide support for deputies and civilians in their time of need. Chaplains are there to provide appropriate assistance, advice, comfort, counsel and referals to those who request support. The faith-based leaders will perform tasks of a more emotional, social, or spiritual nature allowing the deputies to focus their efforts on law enforcement.
