Chaplain Training Underway in Duluth

Training underway for chaplains, who help our community and local law enforcement.

DULTUH, Minn.- Chaplains from across the region are in Duluth this week.

Chaplains are participating in training at the Public Safety Office by the St. Louis County Sheriff’s office, to be the best chaplains possible. FOX21 is told their role is to offer emotional and spiritual support to all people. Chaplains serve as a listening ear to police officers, their families, and victims.

“To talk to us in confidence, it will be able to reduce the possibility of PTSD and many people that are working in emergency services,” regional director¬†Steven Breitbarth “If they don’t do something to take care of themselves, they run the risk of developing PTSD.”

This week’s training is put on by the International Conference of Police Chaplains, which has been around since 1973.¬†
