The Gloucester Township Police Department Chaplain Program was created in 2018. The police department works together with qualified religious leaders, comprised of different denominations to provide emotional and social service assistance to the residents of Gloucester Township. They are available to respond during a crisis or time of need in providing a more personalized quality of service to the community.
The chaplain program is established to provide support for residents and police officers who are stressed in either a social or emotional way. Chaplains are there to provide appropriate assistance, advice, comfort, counsel, and referrals to those in need who request such support. Chaplains assist in situations of death, severe injury, violent crimes, etc.
