Police chaplains respond to counsel, assist and support victims and others touched by critical incidents and crises, including death notifications, suicide, homicides, hostage situations, kidnapping and other traumatic events.

Police chaplains are specially trained to handle crisis situations and also provide follow-up counseling, group debriefings and individual intervention. Police chaplains are trained to minister to people of all faiths.

Police chaplains are non-paid volunteers, and as such all chaplaincy services are provided at no cost to individuals, families or the department.
