The BCSO Chaplain Division provides spiritual and emotional support for over 300 law enforcement personnel and support staff. On call twenty-four hours a day, the BCSO chaplain responds when their presence is needed and requested. BCSO Chaplains provides emotional and spiritual support to the community, providing “the ministry of presence” and compassionate care to victims in times of tragedy. All chaplains are certified by the International Conference of Police Chaplains or are credentialed hospital chaplains or both.

The Chaplain Division also provides spiritual and emotional support for the jail population of up to 650+ inmates. The chaplain division also includes a team of dedicated volunteer Jail Ministers who hold church services for those incarcerated in the Benton County Detention Center. Though most of the Jail Ministers represent the Christian faith, other religions, such Muslim and Buddhism, are also represented. Chaplains and jail ministers work together to provide programs, such as Celebrate Recovery, to help prisoners overcome life-controlling behavior problems such as drug or alcohol addiction.
