I'm not going to be real wordy in this post. My main objective is to get the word out about Police Chaplaincy. I'm sure many of you over time have wondered just exactally am I trying to do with my ministry. Maybe you have even wondered if you should support it. Here is an effort to inform you about Police Chaplaincy. As an affiliate member of The International Conference of Police Chaplains, I have learned much and beleive their video below is an excellent introduction to police chaplaincy for the community As you watch this eleven minute video, please understand that this is what I am trying to acheive here in my community.

I have also included a list of what Police chaplains can do for a law enforcement agency below:
