The Winter Haven Police Department Chaplaincy Program is a diverse corps of dedicated men and women who offer moral, emotional and spiritual guidance to Winter Haven Police members and their families. Chaplains may also serve the citizens of Winter Haven by assisting police personnel in stressful situations involving serious injury or death.
Police Department members are often confronted with situations that demoralize and create emotional, mental and spiritual burdens. These burdens affect the police employees who dealt with the incidents, their families as well as the citizens involved. Police officers and police employees often need to express their frustration and problems to someone who fully understands the circumstances surrounding their duties, without fear of repercussions.
