The High Point Police Chaplain Team is comprised of professional clergy members who volunteer their services to department employees, their families, and members of the community during times of crisis, sorrow, or conflict. Our Chaplains donate several hundred hours to the community and department each year seeking to lighten the burden of the officers by performing tasks that have a greater spiritual or social nature rather than law enforcement nature. Chaplains are on-call 24 hours a day to assist police personnel with a variety of situations in the field such as:
Other accidental deaths
It is our Chaplains who carry out death notifications on behalf of the department.
In order to assist officers and members of the community as well, our Chaplains also:
Respond with the Tactical Team whenever it is activated
Participate in ride-a-longs with officers
Conduct station visits on a regular basis in an effort to better acquaint themselves with the officers and their demanding roles.
As members of the High Point Police Reserves, the Chaplains also assist with various events such as fundraising walks and runs, parades, and other community events.
Constantly strive to strike a balance between serving the needs of the Police Officers in their personal and professional lives and serving the High Point community at large.
