The Madison Heights Police Department recognizes that both sworn and non-sworn law enforcement personnel are subjected to stresses that are unique to the law enforcement position. Police Chaplain Programs are recognized as a vital component of a department's response to employee stress. Police Chaplains serve as an important resource to officers, civilian employees, their families, and to the community. The Chaplains serve our personnel and the community by providing care, compassion, counseling, and guidance when requested.
The Chaplain program was established in 2010 by Chief Roberts, then Deputy Chief Roberts. There are currently five (5) Chaplains that the police department utilizes, each with various experiences and expertise (i.e. youth counseling, domestic violence counseling, etc.). The Chaplains continue to undoubtedly be an asset to the police department.
