The Evesham Police Department proudly established a Police Chaplain Program in 2014. Currently, the program consists of 11 volunteer Chaplains. In 2014 the Evesham Police Department reached out to every house of worship in the township and received an overwhelming positive response from the different faith communities.

The ETPD Chaplain Program was established to serve and support the Evesham Police Department, focused on providing spiritual support for the community during traumatic events and incidents when called upon 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

What Does the Chaplain Program Do?
Police Chaplains respond to counsel, assist and support victims and others touched by critical incidents and crises, including death notifications, suicide, homicides, hostage situations, kidnapping and other traumatic events. Police Chaplains are specially trained to handle crisis situations and also provide follow-up counseling, group debriefings and individual intervention. Police Chaplains are trained to minister to people of all faiths.

Police Chaplains are non-paid volunteers, and as such all chaplaincy services are provided at no cost to individuals, families or the department.
