The purpose of the Police Chaplain program is to maintain a core group of ordained ministers, from a variety of faiths, who volunteer their time and talents to assist the criminal justice system in meeting the spiritual needs of CPD officers, employees and Chattanooga citizens. Police Chaplains support the community and lighten the burden of police officers by performing various tasks of a spiritual nature.

The Police Chaplain consist of a highly trained team of faith leaders who serve CPD officers and their family members. Chaplains may also support victims of crime and their families. Chaplains do not enforce the law, carry weapons or make arrests.
