Chaplains Support Officers as well as Community

Law enforcement officers are on the front lines when it comes to protecting the community in which they serve. But what happens when a tragedy strikes such as the heinous crimes of October 24th that took the life of two deputies and injured a civilian. How do officers and community cope? Law Enforcement Chaplains are an integral part of emotional and spiritual support for victims of violence. Placer County Sheriff Office Senior Chaplain John Akers tells KNCO’s Don Langford, following the memorial service for Sheriff Deputy Michael Davis Jr., that is the hard part of the job, but its the relationships that make it worthwhile.
