The Berrien County Sheriff's Office has a Chaplain Program. There are currently nine active volunteer Chaplains participating in this county-wide program. Sheriff Chaplains are licensed or ordained ministers who have undergone additional training to serve officers as well as members of Berrien County. Our Chaplains may ride with a uniformed officer, but are always on call in the event of a tragedy.
Chaplains may be used for a variety of reasons, but some of the more common are for death notification. Other reasons can include ceremonies, presentations, education, or simply listening.
Our Chaplains serve on a voluntary basis, and receive no compensation for their services. However, donations toward training would be welcome. Checks may be made out to BCSD Chaplains.
