Law enforcement officers are confronted with more situations that demoralize and create emotional, mental, and spiritual burdens than anyone else. This is one reason why the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office has 2 volunteer Chaplains, Brian Harris and Darrell Haney. Chaplains are an important and influential member of the Sheriff’s Office because they work with law enforcement personnel on a professional level by making themselves immediately available in times of loss, confusion, depression, or grief. Chaplains also serve many personal and spiritual needs of individuals. Chaplains offer the support of another person who comes to them without judgment, with openness, and cares for them until the crisis moment is over. Chaplains have many different duties such as:

  • Assist in making notification to families of department members who have been injured or killed
  • Accompanying a deputy to assist with notification of any suicide, death or serious injured
  • Counseling the members of the Sheriff’s Office in response to stress or family crisis problems
  • Visiting with sick or injured members of the Sheriff’s Office at their home or in the hospital
  • Provide emotional support and guidance
