The Chaplain program at the Wheat Ridge PD is an essential part of what we do. These faith leaders provide food at our officer's events, volunteer their time and offer our officers free, safe spaces to recharge and regroup. We greatly appreciate what they do.

Experience with the PD:
I have been a chaplain for the WRPD for 3 years. This is one of the most professional and welcoming organizations I have ever been associated with. As a chaplain, I have felt nothing but support from the department. I have also watched our officers go above and beyond in doing their jobs.
Most rewarding experiences as a PD Chaplain:
The two most rewarding experiences for me working with the WRPD have been building a relationship with many of our officers and seeing the Safe Stop program off the ground. It energizes me to be able to support our department in some tangible ways.
Favorite part about being a chaplain:
I love being with our officers and getting to know them as individuals. It is great to talk with them about family, vacations, hobbies, and life in general. I also love working with officers through the tough times that life and career bring. Our mission is to “serve those who serve us," and that really is what I enjoy doing most.
WRPD's Safe Stop Program:
The Safe Stop program is a way of connecting our faith community to the police department in order to serve and honor our officers. Safe Stops are essentially a substation for officers located in a church. The Safe Stop is a non-contact office that is away from the public’s eye. The Safe Stop is a place that officers can grab a cup of coffee, cold drink, snack, eat lunch and write a report if needed. The officers always have access to the office, and this space is not available to the members of the church. Officers have to continually be vigilant of their surroundings, and Safe Stop gives them a chance to relax in a safe environment.
