The Sheriffs Chaplin Program offers professional religious/social ministry services to citizens in crisis situations. Volunteer ministers work in conjunction with the Sheriff's Deputies to offer these services. These chaplains are trained and equipped to offer counseling, comfort and support to people in emergency situations. Times of extreme emotional turmoil for our citizens such as death notifications and domestic violence situations are examples of when our chaplains could offer their services to members of the community. Chaplains must be ordained ministers of a recognized denomination, or a reputable independent church or religious organization. Our chaplains are available for service 24 hours a day whenever and wherever they are needed.
