RPD Welcomes New Police Chaplains

The Raleigh Police Department welcomed 5 new volunteer Police Chaplains to their ranks. The Police Chaplain Program now consists of a diverse group of chaplains representing the different religious denominations of the Raleigh community. Previously, there were only 2 volunteer Chaplains to accommodate the needs of the entire department.

The Police Chaplain Program is comprised of professional clergy members who volunteer their services to department employees, their families, and members of the community during times of crisis, sorrow, or conflict.

Police Chaplains are on-call 24 hours a day to assist police personnel with a variety of situations in the field such as line of duty death or serious physical injury of an officer, homicides and fatal motor vehicle accidents.  Our Police Chaplains may also be requested to respond to major incidents and disasters such as multiple injury incidents, officer involved shootings and to assist with crisis intervention.  Our Police Chaplains donate several hundred hours to the community and department each year.
