The Hialeah Police Department’s Volunteer Chaplains Unit was established to provide aid and comfort to those in need and to provide a calm and thoughtful presence in times of stress, hardship and grief.
The department’s Chaplains Unit was formed to provide religious guidance, counseling, and assistance for officers, their families, and the community. The chaplains are trained clergy or pastors of a recognized religious denomination, who are active in their local churches, but serve in a nondenominational role when representing the police department. They do not promote their religion to those they help.
The Hialeah Police Department is privileged to have chaplains who volunteer their time and effort to serve this department and the community. For further information on the Chaplains Unit, please contact Lt. Eddie Rodriguez in the Office of the Chief at 305-687-2525.
