The Chaplain Program is composed of chaplains who provide pastoral services to members of the department (enlisted and civilian) and their families, participate in department ceremonies and meetings, accompany enforcement members on duty, and perform other related services. When requested, they may also counsel members and their families, visit sick or injured members, perform wedding ceremonies, and officiate at department funerals. Chaplains are available to assist members at any time, during any tragedy or emergency. The services of a Chaplain may also be made available to residents impacted by crisis events (e.g. accident victims, victims of crime, residents displaced by fire, etc.).
The Chaplain program consists of eight (8) members from our Faith Based Community. Pastor Mark McCaskill is the program coordinator, other members include Pastor Spencer Snow from Monroe Missionary Baptist Church, Deacon Michael Stewart from St. Mary’s Parish, Pastor Doris Chandler from First Presbyterian Church, Minister James Puhl from St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Maybee, Pastor Daniel Potts from Trinity Lutheran Church, Pastor Andrea Leaman from Grace Point Church and Chaplain Greg Milatz.
