The Police Chaplain Project digitally captures the words and wisdom of America’s police chaplains.

A few years back, a group of us established the Police Chaplain Project.

The idea was to tell the story of police chaplaincy one chaplain at a time by creating a video archive. 

We kept it simple. We invite police chaplains come in, sit down, look directly into the camera and share their story.

To date, the Police Chaplain Project has conducted more than 100 on-camera interviews with some of the most accomplished police chaplains of the past 50 years.


    In times of crisis, police officers and their families turn to police chaplains. The problem is many people have never heard of a police chaplain.

    We are working to change that.

    A Change Will Do You Good
