The Police Chaplain Project is a nationwide effort to digitally capture the words and wisdom of America’s police chaplains and share the content we collect online.

They are always there.

After every tragedy, every mass shooting, every line of duty death and natural disaster America’s police chaplains step into the void and heals broken lives.

    Tell Your Stories on Memorial Day

    I encourage everyone to spend some time at family gatherings this weekend to tell folks about your adventures and misadventures, to share your memories.

    Finding My Neighbor

    We become neighbors when we are willing to cross the road for one another.  There is so much separation and segregation: between black people and white people, between gay people and straight people, between young people and old people, between sick people and healthy...
