Swearing in ceremony of Jail Chaplains
FORT PAYNE, Ala. - This past Sunday, September 17th, Sheriff Nick Welden administered the Oath of Office to Adam Moore, Bob Reynolds and Cat Reynolds. Chaplain Mike Harper has served DCSO for the past 5 years and says he would love to see more volunteer for this program where they can more adequately serve our department and inmates.
A Jail Chaplain is many things but most importantly, they are a confidant and a friend.
If you are interested in being a volunteer Chaplain, give us a call and we will set up the interview process with Mr. Harper. Requirements for the program are attending Chaplain Academy, finishing the basic course, Intern for 1 year under a DCSO Chaplain and become a member of ICPC (International Conference of Police Chaplains).
DeKalb County Sheriff Nick Welden said of the incident: "This is a wonderful program and asset to our jail that I support 100%. We definitely need to keep programs like this around and we will push to keep them going."
"God Bless!" Concluded Sheriff Welden.
