Gwinnett police department seeking volunteer chaplains

The Gwinnett County Police Department is seeking applications from people interested in serving the community as a Police Chaplain. Volunteer chaplains play a vital role within the police department by offering guidance and support for individuals, families, or employees who are experiencing emotional trauma or seeking guidance to improve their circumstances.

Potential chaplains must be ordained members of the clergy of their own religious organization for at least two years prior to beginning with the county. They must have also engaged in ministry as a principal vocation for a minimum of two years. Gwinnett has a diverse community and chaplains from all religious backgrounds.

Chaplains may be asked to be on-call, respond to scenes at all hours of the day/night, and perform a monthly visit to a police facility where they are assigned.

Apply by downloading and completing the Volunteer Application Packet at www.tinyurl.com/GwinnettPoliceChaplain.
