Chaplain Corp


The Chaplain Corp was established in 1991 to provide support and encouragement to the Sheriff’s Deputies, staff, and their families. As ordained ministers, the Chaplains volunteer their time for a variety of activities, such as:

  • Home and hospital visitation
  • Conversation with officers on patrol or working in the jail
  • Offer support during times of need, such as funerals
  • Provide employee and family counseling
  • Confidential listening

Pastors have become a vital resource to the men and women of the Ingham County Sheriff’s Office who serve the community. Situations that are often hostile and dangerous can have a very wearing effect on Corrections and Law Enforcement personnel. The support offered by the Chaplain Corp provides the peace and comfort of a compassionate listening ear and the spiritual counseling that can make a major difference in the lives of employees and their families.
