The KPD Chaplain Corps is a support service for KPD employees and their families as well as the community in crisis situations

KPD Chaplains are credentialed by the International Conference of Police Chaplains (ICPC) at the Basic, Senior, and Master levels of law enforcement chaplaincy

The KPD Chaplain Corps is on-call to the Department 24 hours a day and seven days a week for:
  • Spiritual support and assistance to KPD officers or personnel and their families for personal needs such as marriage, family, illness, stress, or grief
  • Spiritual support and assistance to the community in crisis in response to death, accident, or other police calls in which a chaplain can be of assistance to the officers and citizens

    Chaplains serve one on-call day per month responding for 24 hours to calls from the Department in which a chaplain is needed

    Chaplains must meet these requirements to serve with the KPD Chaplain Corps:
  • A minimum of five years of ministry or counseling experience
  • Complete a 60-hour Chaplain Training Academy provided by KPD
  • Attend monthly training meetings
  • Serve one 24-hour on-call Duty Day per month
  • Complete one four hour minimum ride along with an officer per month

    KPD Chaplains serve as volunteers
