Chaplain Program

Chaplain Program

May 4, 2016

Effective 04 May 2016, the Christian County Sheriff’s Office has a new Chaplain program. The selected Chaplain is Dr. Michael Hamilton. He is the current pastor of Hope Church in Sparta and has an extensive law enforcement background from Greene and Cole County in Missouri as well as Jefferson Parrish in New Orleans. He has done our job and understands the stress we are under.

The Sheriff’s Office will utilize the Chaplain program where we can; death scenes and notifications, officer involved traumatic events, natural disaster, and general council as needed by any employee. This program can be an important asset that will enhance our capabilities when utilized.
