Chaplains Program

It is the policy of the City of Platte City Police Department to make counseling and pastoral services available to officers, their families, other departmental members and citizens of this community through the Police Chaplain's Program, whenever such services are requested.

The Police Chaplain Program creates a partnership with various faith-based leaders of a community to respond and assist police and other law enforcement agencies providing an overall better quality to the citizens of Platte City. 

The Police Chaplain is to provide support for Police Officers and civilians in their needs. Chaplains are there to provide appropriate assistance, advice, comfort, counsel and referrals to those in need who may request support. The faith-based leaders will perform tasks of a more emotional, social or spiritual nature while the officers handle those tasks that are of a law enforcement nature. 

The goal is that by having the Police and Clergy working together during times of crisis or incidents that a more comprehensive response will be given to those in need.
