Serving those who serve you



In January, 1999, the Chaplain Corps was implemented to assist the employees of the Sheriff’s Department, their families, and the community through counseling and religious guidance.  A chaplain is on-call 24 hours a day, ready to respond when a law enforcement officer is seriously injured or some other incident occurs where their presence is needed and requested.  Chaplains will also offer their services to the community whenever possible without interfering with police procedure or infringing upon the ministry of others. 


What We do



Message the Chaplains

The Chaplains would love to hear from you.  Feel free to reach out and contact the Chaplain Services by completing the form to the right.

**If this is an emergency or if you are in need of police response, please call 911**
