Cherishing the police

28 November 2014

THERE are now more than 650 police chaplains across the country, most of them registered with the National Association of Chaplains to the Police (NACP). While the police have increasing demands made on them with diminishing resources, the need for their pastoral care is growing.

The Lincolnshire Police have just appointed three chaplains for the first time, and they joined colleagues from other forces at a recent training event held in Derbyshire by the NACP, which has been running induction courses for police chaplains for some years, to provide a basic level of awareness training and to explore the difficult issues that affect the police.

The new chaplains were welcomed by the Deputy National Police Chaplain, the Revd Adrian Gatrill, senior chaplain with the Durham Constabulary, along with chaplains from North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Derbyshire, and Humberside. The majority of police forces now have chaplains, he told them, "and it's great to have Lincolnshire on board."
