The department is using its Facebook page to introduce each of the department’s 11 chaplains to the public.
During the next few months, the Evesham Police Department plans to use social media and other resources to introduce each of the department’s 11 police chaplains.
The latest chaplain to be featured is Pastor William Luebkemann. Luebkemann serves as a pastor with the Baptist Calvary Chapel.
The ETPD Chaplain Program was established to serve and support the Evesham Police Department, focused on providing spiritual support for the community during traumatic events and incidents when called upon 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
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.
