Chaplain Services

Sheriff Kersey’s Chaplin Program is a Volunteer Officer/Detention Chaplaincy program. As long as there is crime, there will be officers and a host of persons supporting the criminal justice system.

Occasionally, these men and women will need additional support to handle overwhelming emotions which are hazards of the job. The type of people and criminal actions law enforcement encounter in communities and jails can sometimes be shocking.

In a service profession to law enforcement, as well as to the incarcerated, and former inmates, the chaplain has a unique perspective of, and possibly is better equipped to address basic problematic events and emotions.

Scotland County Sheriff’s Chaplin program provides the Law Enforcement Breakfast held once a month. The Chaplains have assisted also from their church members in feeding and ministering every Friday 85-110 Inmates.

Our Chaplains are a tremendous asset to the Scotland County Detention Center and the Sheriff’s Office.
