The Need

Police Officers are so often exposed to the dark side of our society. They see the victims of auto accidents and domestic abuse. They are there when children lose their parents and they witness man’s inhumanity to man. The men and women of law enforcement carry this weight upon themselves. On top of this ‘normal’ amount of stress, these are very difficult days for police officers, in general. Police Officers are often called upon to serve those who outwardly acknowledge their dislike of the police.

The Mission

The mission of the Albuquerque Police Department Chaplain Unit is to bear witness to the forgiving love and concern of God Almighty for all people and especially for those in sorrow and despair.

The Service

The Chaplain Unit of the Albuquerque Police Department is non-denominational and non-sectarian. We are available twenty-four hours of the day to assist officers, civilian members of the police department, and their families. In addition to serving the members of the Department, we assist families in their moments of need, providing care at the death of a loved one as well as making death notifications.
