Police Force Chaplaincy
The mission of Police chaplains is to provide spiritual, welfare and pastoral support to police officers, retired police and their families. Police Chaplaincy is an important part of the support network for officers, both on the job, and off duty. Working with officers requires a great understanding of loss and what it means for someone to be going through a period of intense grief.
Officers may confront death on a regular basis and the chaplain is called to help the officers through these situations.
The chaplain’s responsibilities may also include conducting worship services and providing confidential counselling and advising commanders on religious, spiritual and moral matters as well as performing or attending police funerals and assisting families in time of bereavement.
