Chaplain Hartman


Chaplain Richard Hartman serves as the Lead Chaplain for the department.

Police Chaplaincy is a ministry of compassion, presence, and prayer set within the dangerous world of law enforcement.  Nine active chaplains currently volunteer their assistance. Police Chaplains serve the officers and civilian personnel of the police department and the community in which they live.  They provide emergency counseling to those in crisis, make death notifications with compassion, pray with those who are in trouble, and provide a compassionate presence to those in grief.  While the work of the Police Chaplain is sometimes difficult and taxing, the satisfaction gained by ministering to those in the worst possible situations is reward in and of itself. pdfSympathy Booklet
