"Police chaplains play a critical role in the spiritual survival of police officers and their families."
Chaplain David Fair, Co-Founder of the Police Chaplain Project
The Police Chaplain Project is a nationwide effort to digitally capture the words and wisdom of America's police chaplains and share the content we collect online.
“The program seeks out the knowledge and know-how of America's police chaplains and transforms it into digital content,” says Chaplain Dave Fair, the program’s co-founder.
“We keep it simple and straightforward,” explains Chaplain Fair. “We invite police chaplains come in, sit down, look directly into the camera and share their story.”
To date, the Police Chaplain Project has conducted more that 100 on-camera interviews with some of the most accomplished police chaplains of the past 50 years. From those recording sessions we have created and shared over 200 video segments via social media.
Wisdom that was once lost, is now preserved for future generations.
After every tragedy, mass shooting, natural disaster and line of duty death – it is a police chaplain who steps into the void and heals broken lives.
Yet, few citizens have even heard of a police chaplain. We are working to change that.
“We believe it’s time to share the story of police chaplaincy,” says Fair.
