Police Chaplain Program

The employees of the Cochran Police Department may, at times, find themselves in need of personal and family counseling and support of a spiritual nature. No one is confronted with more situations that demoralize and create emotional, mental and spiritual burdens than those who work in the law enforcement profession. An organized program designed to respond to the needs of employees in these areas will serve to enhance employee well being, both on and off the job. The Police Chaplain Program will serve to address these specific needs providing assistance to the employee and the organization.

Purpose

The purpose of the Police Chaplain Program is to make available at least one qualified individual who is trained and experienced in the methods of response, intervention and support for employees who require spiritual and religious support. The program will make available a police chaplain on a twenty-four hour basis who is certified and a member of the Georgia Association of Law Enforcement Chaplains.

Mission Statement

The Cochran Police Department Chaplain will affirm that God is the answer to man’s dilemma by bearing witness to His love and power to the personnel of the police department, both sworn and civilian, their families, and those they serve.

The Chaplain will offer this care to all regardless of race, creed, sex, or religion. It is a ministry of service. The Chaplain will be led by his or her own faith and be ready to serve and be a source of strength to those in need.
