The Cass County Sheriff’s Office Chaplaincy Initiative began in 2006 with a core group of dedicated clergy members and law enforcement personnel from all areas of Cass County. The purpose of the Chaplaincy Initiative is to provide networking and collaboration between law enforcement and clergy members in identifying needs and providing advocacy, support and assistance to members of the community and staff, as needed. The chaplains are here to serve community members in times of crisis situations. They are not intended to replace an individual’s clergy person. All chaplains serve at the discretion of the sheriff’s office and provide guidance, counseling and comfort in times of crisis to the people of Cass County.
