Chaplaincy
 
 
The Baker City Police Department has a staffed Chaplaincy Program. 
 
Pastoral care offered to all regardless of face, gender, sexual orientation, emotional origin, creed or religion. 
 
No one is confronted with more stations that demoralize and create emotional, mental and spiritual burdens than today's law enforcement officers.  These burdens also affect the officers family and other members of his/her department.  
 
Law Enforcement Chaplains play a vital role with our department.  They do some of the following:
 
    • Counsel law enforcement officers
    • Counsel other members of a department
    • Counsel the families of law enforcement officers and other department personnel
    • Visit sick or injured officers and departmental staff in homes and hospitals
    • Make death notifications
    • Provide assistance to victims
    • Teach officers in areas such as stress management, ethics and family life
    • Serve as part of the department's crisis response team
    • Assist at suicide incidents
    • Serve as a liaison with other clergy in the community
    • Provide for the spiritual needs of prisoners
    • Furnish expert responses to religious questions
    • Offer prayer at special occasions such as recruit graduations, award ceremonies and dedication of buildings
    • Serve on review boards, award boards and other committees
    • Deal with transients and the homeless
     
     Our Chaplaincy Program has core values: 
    1. Chaplains respect and honor the badge and the men and women who have earned the right to wear it
    2. Chaplains pledge availability to the needs of law enforcement officers and victims of crimes
    3. Chaplains pledge their lives and our office to the scrutiny of accountability to ensure integrity
    4. Chaplains offer professionalism of service, including confidential listening and spiritual counsel
