The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office (LCSO) recruits volunteer Chaplains to serve in the LCSO Chaplain Unit. The Chaplain Unit provides departmental employees with spiritual guidance, comfort in times of crisis, and such assistance as the Chaplain is able to render in times of emergency. Deputies are increasingly confronted with situations that demoralize and create emotional, mental, and spiritual burdens. These burdens affect not only the deputy but the deputy’s family and other members of the agency. In addition to serving law enforcement, the Chaplain Unit may also aid citizens in crisis at the deputy's discretion.
- The Chaplain must be ordained, invested, or a certified member of the clergy in good standing of a recognized religious denomination and have at least seven years of full-time experience in the ministry.
- The Chaplain must have no convictions of a criminal offense and no record of having previously engaged in criminal conduct, which would be a disqualifying issue.
- The Chaplain must possess a valid driver’s license.
- The Chaplain must be a resident of the United States and 21 years of age or older.
If you are motivated to help those who serve our community in times of crisis, please consider applying to the LCSO Chaplain Unit.
