We have chaplains in place supporting officers and civilian staff, in the headquarters and each Division of Derbyshire Constabulary, as well as out in the field.
Our chaplaincy team consists of a co-ordinating 'Lead' chaplain and a network of voluntary chaplains attached to local stations and departments across the force area.
Although chaplains are drawn from all faith communities, they are very aware that members of staff may be of a different faith or none. The chaplains' prime concern is the care of the individual and matters of faith will be treated with sensitivity involving other faith ministers where appropriate.
For further information please contact our Principal Chaplain.
