Here are some of the questions that people ask about police chaplains. They will explain a little more about what we do and why.
Chaplains are drawn from all faiths although at the moment they are predominantly Christian. Chaplains may be volunteers giving between a minimum of two hours a week. Their expenses are usually covered by the police. Other chaplains are full or part time paid chaplains sponsored and paid for by their faith community.
If you are interested in becoming a police chaplain you should pursue this through your own faith community in the first instance. You will need to have had a number of years experience in a pastoral care situation and be willing to minister to all those in the police service regardless of their beliefs or lack of them.
